This paper on child neglect policy and practice issues in Wales comprises three elements. First we introduce the topic in the context of current family support services that seek to offer early intervention to tackle, inter alia, child neglect and other not unconnected harms and adversities in childhood. Secondly, we set out key findings from a Welsh Government commissioned study into developing a multi-partner strategy for reducing child neglect across Wales. Thirdly, we conclude with a summary of critical ingredients that are likely to configure the development of a national response to neglect in Wales. Together these elements provide a snapshot of recent progress made in service development and strategic planning.
