Abstract

Creating safer organisations: practical steps to prevent the abuse of children by those working with them [Marcus Erooga (ed), 2012. Wiley Child Protection and Policy Series, Chichester, UK:Wiley-Blackwell. 210 Pages, Softcover ISBN 978-1-119-97268-6]
The publication of this book could not be timelier, given that child abuse within organisations has become a media-heavy topic recently. The nearly daily revelations of new abuse cases within the Catholic Church internationally, individual cases of professional abuse in the UK, such as that involving Vanessa George in Little Ted’s nursery and, most recently , the high-profile case of Jimmy Savile with all its fallouts for the BBC, Broadmoor and other hospitals, have dominated
the media.
