A Shared Responsibility

"Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children – and in particular protecting them from significant harm – depends upon effective joint working between agencies and workers/practitioners that have different roles and expertise."

This section is where you can find our local contacts for safeguarding children and making a referral to Social Care, as well as other general guidance which relates to the contents of these procedures.

Please be aware that you may be directed to the Greater Manchester Safeguarding Partnership website for some of these policies, as this is the agreed site where all the procedures for safeguarding in Greater Manchester are held.
