Welcome to the new Halton Children and Young People Safeguarding Partnership website

 

Arrangements for safeguarding Children and Young People in England have changed.

The Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) has been replaced by the Halton Children and Young People Safeguarding Partnership (HCYPSP)

These new arrangements come into effect on Thursday 11th July 2019, further details can be found in the About Us page

The new arrangements have been determined by the three key safeguarding partners – Halton Borough Council, Cheshire Constabulary and NHS Halton Clinical Commissioning Group. All three safeguarding partners have equal and joint responsibility for local safeguarding arrangements.

Relevant agencies are named by the three partners, and all have a legal duty to co-operate with the arrangements – List of Relevant Agencies and Relevant Agencies – Organisational Responsibilities.
