Plumbers to spot child abuse
The link is to an article about how plumbers at Lincoln City Council are going to be trained to spot child abuse.
What all of this ignores is that more people that are under pressure to report things the more reports there will be. The system's problem is not a lack of reports, but instead a lack of action.
The more reports there are the less action there will be as there is no additional resource going into the system to handle the reports.
Obviously people should be concerned about child abuse, but we really need to concentrate on the serious cases and not overwhelm the practitioners with masses of reports of situations which frankly often don't require any intervention.
