We are planning a Cumbria Safeguarding Children Fortnight, taking place from 9th to 20th September 2019.

Why? Because safeguarding is everyone's business.

We will be holding a series of learning events, across the county, to highlight that safeguarding is not just being about child protection intervention, but also has a place in the wider community.

The fortnight will also be used to share information and engage with practitioners about the new partnership arrangement for safeguarding children. The Department for Education published a new Working Together in 2018 that set out new safeguarding arrangements for local authorities, their statutory partners and wider safeguarding agencies and bodies. Under the new legislation, the three safeguarding partners (local authorities, chief officers of police, and clinical commissioning groups) must make arrangements to work together with relevant agencies (as they consider appropriate) to safeguard and protect the welfare of children in the area. 

The Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership (CSCP) will replace the current Cumbria LSCB from 29 September 2019.

More information will be published in the coming weeks!
