Children in Devon are best safeguarded when key agencies work together effectively. The Devon Safeguarding Children Partnership is designed to help make this happen.

It is our aim to make sure that children and families can get the right support, in the right place at the right time.

Read more about how the partnership was formed.

In response to Working Together to Safeguarding Children (July 2018) the Devon SCP partners – Devon County Council, NHS Devon ICB, and Devon & Cornwall Police – agreed and published our local Safeguarding Arrangements for Children and Young People in Devon.

This details how:

  • we will work together to identify and respond to the needs of children in the area
  • we will commission and publish local child safeguarding practice review
  • make sure the effectiveness of the arrangements are independently scrutinised.
