North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NYSCP)

What is North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NYSCP)?

The purpose of NYSCP is to support and enable local organisations and agencies to work together in a system where:

• Children are safeguarded and their welfare promoted;

• Partner organisations and agencies collaborate, share and co-own the vision for how to achieve improved outcomes for vulnerable children;

• Organisations and agencies challenge appropriately and hold one another to account effectively;

• There is early identification and analysis of new safeguarding issues and emerging threats;

• Learning is promoted and embedded in a way that local services for children and families can become more reflective and implement changes to practice;

• Information is shared effectively to facilitate more accurate and timely decision making for children and families.

In order to work together effectively, the safeguarding partners with other local organisations and agencies will develop processes that:

• Facilitate and drive action beyond usual institutional and agency constraints and boundaries;

• Ensure the effective protection of children is founded on practitioners developing lasting and trusting relationships with children and their families.

What is a relevant agency?

Relevant agencies are those organisations and agencies that NYSCP consider to safeguard and promote the welfare of local children. These include health organisations, education, early years, criminal justice, voluntary sector, local government, public services and wider youth engagement group. Strong effective multi-agency arrangements are ones that are responsive to local circumstances and engage the right people.

How does NYSCP operate?
