Children in Devon are best safeguarded when key agencies work together effectively. The Devon Safeguarding Children Partnership is made up of Devon County Council, NEW Devon CCG, Devon & Cornwall Police and Children & Family Health Devon. Their aim is to make sure that children and families can get the right support, in the right place at the right time.
The partnership intends to do this by:
- working together to identify and respond to the needs of children in the area
- commissioning and publishing local child safeguarding practice reviews
- making sure the effectiveness of the arrangements are independently scrutinised.
The Devon Safeguarding Children Partnership have a really informative website with lots of resources, guidance, and information around the wellbeing and safety of children, young people and families. The website also details what to do when you believe a child in Devon is at risk of harm or abuse, using the contact details below:
