Improvements to the NYSCB website

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
