The procedures have been agreed by as a framework for joint agency working in child protection. They reflect relevant legislation, guidance from central government and lessons from research. Staff that are or may be involved in protection of children need to have a working knowledge of these documents and to refer to relevant sections as needed.
Procedures are presently being updated to incorporate changes made within Working Together to Safeguard Children, March 2013.
Standards have been developed within North Yorkshire based on these procedures. They can be downloaded from the Supplemental Procedures Section of this website. Practice guidance is also available from the Practice Guidance Section.
