In response to the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and Working Together 2018 we are currently transitioning towards new multi-agency safeguarding children arrangements. When operational, by 1st September, the Hull Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSCP) will be a multi-agency forum led by the three statutory partners (Local Authority-Hull City Council, Hull Clinical Commissioning Group and Humberside Police), for ensuring that different services co-operate to protect children and young people in Hull. The Partnership will seek assurance and evidence that the children of Hull are protected from all forms of abuse and neglect in order to confirm that everybody working with children works effectively together. The Partnership identifies other partners including schools, health providers, and the Voluntary and Community Sector as being crucial to the successful implementation of these arrangements.
The Hull Safeguarding Children Board (HSCB) is the statutory body that brings together all the key partners and organisations who work together to promote children’s welfare and help protect them from abuse.
This website provides information, advice and guidance to the public, children, parents and carers, and professionals working with children and young people.
Also, the same legislation requires new arrangements for the Child Death Review process, led by statutory partners (Local Authority and Clinical Commissioning Group).
