About the Child Protection Project

Currently the Child Protection Project is undergoing a re-evaluation. During this time we will be undertaking a full review and evaluation of the service to consider how best we can continue to meet our users' needs. This means that over the next few months there will be a reduction to the service we can offer. Users will still be able to access this website for free but we will not be operating our telephone advice line for professionals.

We can still offer training packages and consultancy services to individuals and organisations - please email us at cpp@essex.ac.uk for further details.

Please continue to keep checking this website for further updates on the future of the CPP.

If you would like to provide some feedback on the CPP please click HERE to take our quick survey - your feedback is greatly appreciated.
