The Protection of Children Act List

The Protection of Children Act list (Poca)

The name of anyone working with children who has been dismissed for misconduct “which harmed a child or placed a child at risk of harm” is placed on this list. Both Angella Mairs, social work team manager, and social worker Lisa Arthurworrey, who were involved in the Victoria Climbie case, were placed on the list. However, both won their appeals against inclusion on the list.
