Early Help - Working Together

This page is currently under construction - more information will be available shortly.

"If children and families are to receive the right help at the right time, everyone who comes into contact with them has a role to play in identifying concerns, sharing information and taking prompt action". (Keeping Children Safe in Education, HM Government September 2019).

Children and families may need support from a wide range of local agencies at different times in their lives. Assistance given must be inclusive, involving parents or carers, child or young person, relevant professionals and support services which allow practitioners to make informed and proportionate responses to need.

A joined up approach helps the children and family feel listened to and enabled to be part of the solution and helps the whole family now and into the future.

If you have any safeguarding concerns, please phone 01452 426565 in the first instance.

The Executive's functions include making sure safeguarding policies are in place; communicating the need to safeguard children; evaluating the effectiveness of what is done by Board partners to safeguard children; and making sure lessons are learnt from Serious Case Reviews. The GSCE also delivers, monitors and evaluates multi-agency training for a variety of frontline staff who work with children and young people.

The GSCE website has a wide range of information including guidance for those working with children and young people.  Please click HERE to access the GSCE website.
