Welcome to the Tees Safeguarding Children Procedures Website

Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and the Tees Safeguarding Children Partnerships bring together people who work with children and their families to ensure that the safety and welfare of children is at the heart of their work.  We lead the work to safeguard children across our regions.

The aim of the Tees Safeguarding Children Partnerships is to make sure those who work with children and their families do it well and keep children safe. The Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership meetings are attended by professionals from the local authority, health services, the police, and relevant partners.

The Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership's Procedures Group is attended by representatives from both the Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSSCP) and South Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership (STSCP).  The group meets six weekly to review and develop Tees-wide Safeguarding Children procedures which are held on this website.  (The Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership's Procedures Group Terms of Reference can be found here)

This website gives children and young people, their families and communities and professionals useful information about how organisations work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.  If you are concern about the safety and well-being of a child please contact the relevant Children’s Social Care office (contact details can be obtained by selecting the relevant local authority logo above).

If you feel that there are any gaps in the content on this website please email details to HSSCP@hartlepool.gov.uk  

 

Please note: Local safeguarding procedures for adults can be found on the TSAB website at Local Policies, Strategies and Procedures
