Resource impact statement

No significant resource impact is anticipated

We do not expect this guideline to have a significant impact on resources; that is:

  • the resource impact of implementing any single guideline recommendation will be less than £1 million per year in England (or £1,800 per 100,000 population) and
  • the resource impact of implementing the whole guideline in England will be less than £5 million per year (or £9,100 per 100,000 population).

The focus of the recommendations is on working with children, young people, parents and carers, recognition of factors that increase vulnerability to child abuse and neglect and recognising child abuse and neglect. There may be a resource impact from activities required to raise awareness to health professionals but it is anticipated that implementing the recommendations may be mostly achieved from using existing resources differently.

It is anticipated this will be achieved by using existing resources differently.

Some recommendations have been adapted from the NICE guideline on children’s attachment (NG26). It is considered that the resource impact for these recommendations has already been identified in the Children’s attachment guideline resource impact assessment.

Services where early help, recognition, assessment and response to child abuse and neglect may take place are commissioned by local authorities, NHS England and clinical commissioning groups. Providers are social care providers, schools, colleges, primary and secondary health care providers.
