What we do

The Wandsworth Safeguarding Children Partnership is the local arrangement to co-ordinate safeguarding service to ensure that all children are safeguarded and their welfare is promoted.

The three statutory partners, the Local Authority, the Police and the Clinical Commissioning Group (part of the NHS) must work with all agencies, which includes schools and colleges, to ensure everyone works together and shares information to help keep our children safe. The aim is to improve the outcomes for all children and particularly those who are most vulnerable.

Full details of how these arrangements work and what must be done can be found in the Children Act 2004 as amended by the Children and Social Work Act 20017 and the statutory guidance, Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018.
