This book allows us to consider the whole child and challenges us to communicate in a meaningful way so that the wellbeing of the child is secured. If you think that caring for a child is 'child's play', you may be nearer than you think to understanding and respecting the child's world." Glo Potter, foster carer

"The book supports students' undertsanding of how safeguarding practice fits within the legal framework." Amanda Crow, University of Huddersfield.
