Child Protection Records Retention and Storage Guidelines

Guidelines from the NSPCC.

NSPCC logo

“If an organisation needs to hold records about a child or adult for any reason, it must have policies and procedures in place regarding the retention and storage of that information.

As well as this, as part of its safeguarding policy and procedures, every organisation must have clear guidelines for the retention, storage and destruction of child protection records. These are records which relate to concerns about a child’s welfare and safety, and/or concerns about possible risks posed by people working or volunteering with children.”
