COVID-19 Safeguarding Arrangements
During this difficult time partners across the Sheffield Safeguarding Children Partnership are working to their contingency plans to ensure that resources are focused on the most vulnerable. The Partnership urges everyone to follow the appropriate local and national guidance. Please remember that individual, professional and agency responsibilities to protect those at risk still continue and we should all be acting with the best interests of children uppermost. It is important that everyone remembers that safeguarding can only be effective where there are strong and open links between individual practitioners and agencies, and that good and prompt communication and the sharing of relevant information, will help ensure that people remain safe, especially at this time.
All of our face to face safeguarding children training has now been cancelled until further notice. Any updates to this will be posted on the training pages of this website.
