Improvements to the NYSCB website

As part of our continual improvement of the NYSCB website we have refocused the options available for professionals to help you locate information quickly.

Under the ‘professionals’ option on our website you will be able to find:

  • The ‘NYSCB Procedures
  • Practice Guidance’ for professionals
  • Our range of ‘One Minute Guides’ (OMGs) on a variety of subjects including Rapid Responses, Trafficking, Vulnerable, Exploited Missing and Trafficked Practitioner Groups and more
  • Our new category of ‘Safeguarding Themes’ which provides links to information, resources and campaigns supported by the NYSCB on a variety of safeguarding issues
  • The ‘Vulnerability Checklist’, which is the agreed multi-agency threshold document for North Yorkshire
  • Forms for professionals’ for referring a child or young person to the Children and Families Service, Partnership Information Sharing Form, Reports for Child Protection Conferences, Notification of Child Deaths and more
  • Child Death’ notification forms, procedures and information about the Child Death Review Process
  • Information regarding ‘notifiable childcare incidents’ including links to report incidents
  • A ‘glossary’ of safeguarding terms

Please disseminate this information to colleagues within your agency.
