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 describes the policies used to manage cases concerning individuals who pose a risk of harm to children.

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.
