Rachel Buckler on Identify, Help and Protect children in our care


Rachel has over 30 years experience of working within the context of safeguarding and child protection particularly in the early years. Rachel spent 25 years working in social care and developing early intervention services for Local Authorities in the North West of England. She is co-founder of the Early Years Hub and supports numerous early years settings, schools and local authorities as a trainer and consultant.

In this interview, Rachel and I discuss how we use processes that identify need, help and protect young children in the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic; responding effectively to well-being and safeguarding concerns for all children; how Early Help can make a difference; identifying and contextualising Early Help interventions; identifying when protection is needed and levels of need; strategies to identify, help and protect children.
