Report Cover of Hidden HarmThis section of the website hosts some key government documents as well as practice guidance and protocols.

The government documents represent what we believe to be the key publications relating to the field of parental substance misuse.

More government publications are available on its website. The websites of all government departments and many other agencies and public bodies are currently being merged into this site.

Our selection of practice guidance and protocols are available to support inter-agency work as laid out in Working Together. These documents reflect local safeguarding procedures and local practice.

Please also refer to local authority websites for information about their local safeguarding boards.
