During the Covid-19 outbreak, updates from key partners will be published here.

Whilst Covid-19 remains a pandemic, safeguarding children and vulnerable adults remains a key priority for all our agencies and partners.

Some of our usual LSCP meetings and subgroups have paused but representatives from the three Safeguarding Partners (Local Authorities, Police, CCGs), are meeting regularly to receive key safeguarding children updates and agree actions as required.
