Safeguarding Partnership

The Children and Social Work Act 2017 and Working Together 2018 introduced new flexible arrangements for safeguarding children. Warwickshire Safeguarding has introduced a model for safeguarding that will allow us to develop a family focused approach.

Our new partnership arrangements are designed to support and enable local organisations and agencies to work together in a system where:

  • children, young people and adults are safeguarded and their welfare promoted
  • partner organisations and agencies collaborate, share and co-own the vision for how to achieve improved outcomes for vulnerable children, young people and adults
  • organisations and agencies challenge appropriately and hold one another to account effectively
  • there is early identification and analysis of new safeguarding issues and emerging threats
  • learning is promoted and embedded in a way that local services for children, young people and adults can become more reflective and implement changes to practice
  • information is shared effectively to facilitate more accurate and timely decision making for children, young people and adults
  • local data from all agencies is developed to strategically identify and respond to the underlying conditions and factors that lead to the need for help and protection

More information about the work of Warwickshire Safeguarding can be found by visiting the following pages.

I am a Child/Young person

If you are a child or young person under 18 years old, this area of the website is for you.

All children and young people have the right to be protected from harm.  Safeguarding is about the action taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.  It means that children are protected from:

  • Abuse and maltreatment
  • Preventing harm to children's health or development  
  • Ensuring children grow up in safe, effective care
  • Taking action to ensure that all children have the best outcomes 

If you are concerned about yourself or someone else, you can call a helpline which is just for children and young people.  Childline is a helpline which is free, private and confidential and it doesn't show up on the phone bill.  Or you can contact them online.
