UK society is highly diverse, providing a home to people from a wide variety of cultural, linguistic, and religious traditions. Occasionally safeguarding issues and child protection concerns arise in the context of culture or migration which can make it difficult to identify how best to uphold a child’s rights. This chapter addresses some of the most important instances in which a child’s or family’s national or cultural background may influence the well-being of a child in your care.
