The future structural arrangements for ensuring effective multi-agency safeguarding in localities is changing as a result of the Children and Social Work Act 2017. Safeguarding Boards will cease to exist at the latest by September 2019 and will be replaced by a new arrangement agreed by the Local Authority, Police and Clinical Commissioning Group.
Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees Safeguarding Childen Partnership commences on 10th April 2019.
We have developed and tested a new way of working over the past three months, based on sharper analysis, active learning, independent challenge and scrutiny and we are confident that this gives us the right model for the future.
We look forward to working on this together, and with all of our partners.
