Welcome to the NYSCP September 2022 edition of our e-Bulletin
Welcome to our September edition of the NYSCP e-Bulletin, I hope you have all had a pleasant summer holidays and have managed to get some form of a break and enjoyed some of the sunshine.
As we move into the new school year, our thoughts turn to the cooler days and longer nights (the leaves are already starting to change colour!), we have lots to share with you as a partnership.
As always, our training package, including our free monthly mini masterclass is available on our website. We are also excited to be hosting our Designated Safeguarding Lead Network conference in October. Find out more on our training page.
The new term brings new starts for so many families and young people and for me, I’ll be having my own new start; as I commence the role of Multi Agency Child Exploitation (MACE) Lead for the partnership. I look forward to meeting lots more partners as I start the position, and in the meantime if you would like to know any more about Child Exploitation in North Yorkshire head over to our Be Aware knowledge hub.
We hope you find the information on this month bulletin useful, and as ever, if there is anything you would like us to include, or any feedback you have on the content please do get in touch with us here.
Policy and Development Officer, MACE Lead.

Suicide Prevention Day
#WorldSuicidePreventionDay on the 10th September aims to spread awareness of suicide prevention! Every year suicide is among the top 20 leading causes of death for people of all ages! You can find some interesting ways to show your support here: https://www.iasp.info/wspd/
For every suicide, 25 people make a suicide attempt and many more have serious thoughts of suicide, help raise awareness of #WorldSuicidePreventionDay here: https://www.iasp.info/wspd/
For each suicide approximately 135 people suffer intense grief or are otherwise affected. This amounts to 108 million people per year who are profoundly impacted by suicidal behaviour #WorldSuicidePreventionDay https://www.iasp.info/wspd/
