Role of the NCSCP

The Nottingham City Safeguarding Children Partnership (NCSCP) is established in accordance with the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018.

The NCSCP provides the safeguarding arrangements under which the safeguarding partners and relevant agencies work together to coordinate their safeguarding services, identify and respond to the needs of children in Nottingham City, commission and publish local child safeguarding practice reviews and provide scrutiny to ensure the effectiveness of the arrangements.

Accountability for the effectiveness of safeguarding rests with the safeguarding partners through a new Strategic Leadership Group. The new arrangements provide a streamlined and improved framework for the safeguarding partnership to demand even more positive outcomes for all of our children and young people.

  • Strengthen and support a competent and equipped workforce that is committed to learning and developing safeguarding practice with the assurance that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility
  • Evidence of the impact of NCSCP
