This guide is for workers and employers who work with children and young people with moving and handling needs. It is intended to help make sure
that the experiences of disabled children and young people are not limited by misinterpretation or misunderstanding of legislation and regulation. It offers a common-sense, practical approach that reflects current children's rights legislation, manual handling and health and safety regulations. It considers the rights of children and young people, workers and employers and considers the risk assessment process that should be used when considering the risks associated with moving and handling.
