Welcome to the NYSCP July 2023 edition of our e-bulletin

Welcome to the July Edition of the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership’s (NYSCP) E-Bulletin. It is incredible that July is here already! We are already past the longest day and are officially in summer. 

June was a busy month and between 19 and 23 June we had safeguarding week.  We held a number of webinars across the week on subjects including the Dark Web, Multi-Agency Child Exploitation, Learning from Star and Arthur and Livestreaming and the Risks Presented to Children and Young People.  These are now available on the NYSCP’s YouTube Channel at NYSCP – YouTube

We have another packed e-bulletin for you this month, from national learning to the latest guidance on Keeping Children Safe in Education and much more.

July marks a couple of important events:

  • Between the 5th and 9th of July is National Co-Production Week, back for a sixth year to celebrate the benefits of co-production, share good practice and promote the contribution of people who use services and carers in developing better public services.  You can find out more at the Social Care Institute for Excellence website.

I hope you have a great summer, and we will see you in the August edition of our e-bulletin.
