Welcome to our website, providing you with all the information you need about child protection in West Dunbartonshire.
Child Protection is everyone's responsibility ("It's Everyone's Job to Make Sure I'm Alright", Scottish Executive, 2002).
In West Dunbartonshire the drivers for this are the Child Care Teams who make assessments of risk and offer follow up support.
They, in partnership with other agencies, provide a service to the Children's Hearing system.
Services are also provided to "looked after" children and their families, and, where possible, preventative services and crisis support is offered in addition.
