CHSCP Policy Guidance

Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy Guidance

All organisations (both safeguarding partners and all designated relevant agencies) should have a clear safeguarding & child protection policy that sets out how they will keep children safe and how they will respond to child protection concerns. This is a basic requirement of our local safeguarding arrangements.

The CHSCP has released new guidance to help organisations write such a policy and how to structure it for best effect. Organisations should include the core elements of this guidance, alongside any specific requirements relevant to their respective sectors.
