Safeguarding Policies and Procedures
From 31st March 2017 Worcestershire has provided child safeguarding procedures as part of a West Midlands consortium along with the safeguarding partners in eight other areas. It was felt that it would be sensible to move to a more regional approach to multi-agency working around safeguarding, especially in light of the fact that so many partner organisations (including Police, Probation, Health and many others) span an area that crosses local authority boundaries.
- Statutory Child Protection Procedures
- Regional Safeguarding Guidance
- Local Area Specific Safeguarding Information and Procedures
The Procedures are regularly updated and there is an easy to view page with recent amendments. There is also a facility to register for update information.
