Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership

Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership

The Wood Review 2015, and the subsequent government guidance, ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ 2018, required all local area to review their safeguarding children arrangements. Consequently, new arrangements for safeguarding children and young people in Sheffield came into place on 30th June 2019, when the Sheffield Safeguarding Children Board (SSCB) was replaced by the Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership (SCSP).

The three local safeguarding partners jointly leading the partnership are:

  • Sheffield City Council – represented by the Chief Executive
  • Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group - represented by the Chief Nurse
  • South Yorkshire Police – represented by the District Commander

Supported by partner agencies from across health, education, criminal justice system and others, the Partnership is committed to working together to improve the safety of children and young people in Sheffield. Learn Sheffield provides education representation and now represents the education sector on the Executive Partnership Group. We are seeking to further develop the range of education engagement in the work of the partnership.

There is more information about the new partnership arrangements in the document on the right and on the Safeguarding Sheffield Children website.

As previously, all information about Safeguarding in Sheffield can be found on the Safeguarding Sheffield Children website www.safeguardingsheffieldchildren.org/sscb
