Safeguarding Children’s Partnerships Stockton, Hartlepool and South Tees
Tees Safeguarding Children’s Partnership
Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and the Tees Safeguarding Children Partnerships bring together people who work with children and their families to ensure that the safety and welfare of children is at the heart of their work. We lead the work to safeguard children across our regions.
The aim of the Tees Safeguarding Children Partnerships is to make sure those who work with children and their families do it well and keep children safe. The Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership meetings are attended by professionals from the local authority, health services, the police, and relevant partners.
The Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership’s Procedures Group is attended by representatives from both the Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSSCP) and South Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership (STSCP). The group meets six weekly to review and develop Tees-wide Safeguarding Children procedures which are held on this website. (The Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership’s Procedures Group Terms of Reference can be found here)
Their website gives children and young people, their families and communities and professionals useful information about how organisations work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
