Implementation of a new code of practice to be used by Social Services in Child Protection cases
  • an information sheet should be made available to families, advising on what to do, where to go, and who to see when under a Child Protection investigation
  • a file note should be added to records, exonerating parents/carers wrongly accused of causing a non-accidental injury. A copy of that file note should then be sent to the police for them to place at the front of their files
  • a letter of apology stating clearly that the parents/carers wrongly accused did not cause an NAI should be issued
  • the wrongly accused should receive compensation for both loss of earnings and trauma suffered
