A message to all our partners and the public

A core function of our safeguarding partnerships is to have a close eye on performance, and support partner activity.

During this period of unprecedented uncertainty, the partnership recognises that there will need to be constructive consideration of any adjustments to care and support arrangements put into place for children and vulnerable adults and the partnerships will continue to perform their duties.

Whilst it is likely that some of the Safeguarding Business team are tasked to support front door services, this will be alongside dealing with Safeguarding Unit and Partnership priorities.

During the current Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, we would like to reassure you that we are doing our utmost to maintain business continuity and remain committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults across the district.
