Revised SET Child Protection Procedures launched

Last updated by ruth.salter@essex.gov.uk on Tuesday, October 8, 2019

 

 

Today sees the launch of the next round of updates to the SET Child Protection Procedures.

 

A copy of the procedures can be found here. We have also provided you with a reference document that lists which chapters have been updated and any impact on practice.  

 

Primarily the key changes made to the procedures are to reflect the new multi-agency safeguarding arrangements that came into force nationally from 29 September 2019 and replace Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs).

 

Across Southend, Essex and Thurrock the ‘Local Multi-Agency Safeguarding Partnerships/Boards’ will co-ordinate these new arrangements on behalf of their named Statutory Partners and will be referred to throughout the SET Child Protection and Safeguarding Procedures.

 

The new multi-agency safeguarding arrangements in Essex will continue to sit under the Essex Safeguarding Children Board.
