New Croydon Safeguarding Children Partnership (CSCP) – arrangements published
New safeguarding partnership arrangements have been developed in response to the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and Working Together 2018 and will replace the Croydon Safeguarding Children Board from 1 September 2019.
These arrangements set out how the three safeguarding partners in Croydon will work together with other organisations, including schools, to safeguard children and young people.
The CSCP Executive members advised:
‘We are ambitious for the children and young people of Croydon and we want them to grow up safe, happy and healthy and to be nurtured and protected by their family and the community around them.
Working together we are committed to supporting families and the local community to provide our children with the very best support and opportunities.
Strong partnership working is essential to making sure that children and young people get the help and protection they need.
The Croydon Safeguarding Children Partnership is committed to securing the very best outcomes and we will support and challenge one another to ensure all our children thrive.’
