resignation raises child safety fears

5 October 2010

With the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) already the subject of a government review, today brings the news that the government’s intervention in the running of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) has led to the resignation of the well-regarded Chief Executive, Jim Gamble.

The shadow Home Secretary, Alan Johnson, criticised the government’s plans, saying they “will harm child safety networks”. And he is not alone with many feeling the high watermark for safeguarding children established under Labour is now being lowered by the coalition government.
