ROTHERHAM SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN PARTNERSHIP
WELCOME TO THE ROTHERHAM SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN PARTNERSHIP
This site provides important safeguarding information for the public, children, young people, parents, carers, school staff and other professionals living and working in the Rotherham area.
Principles and Priorities
The Rotherham Safeguarding Children Partnership are pleased to publish the new Multi-Agency Safeguarding Children Arrangements for Rotherham; and the Arrangements for Reviewing Child Deaths, in partnership with the other three local authority areas in South Yorkshire.
The multi-agency safeguarding children arrangements, to be implemented from September 2019, will be independently chaired and consists of the three key agencies that collectively hold the statutory responsibilities for safeguarding in Rotherham: NHS Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group, Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, South Yorkshire Police; and also includes all the agencies and organisations in the wider partnership providing services to children and their families in Rotherham.
The Rotherham Safeguarding Children Arrangements and all the partners named within them have a key role to play in ensuring that children in Rotherham are kept safe and that all organisations work together effectively to promote their welfare.
Safeguarding means promoting a child’s welfare and protecting them to live safely within their families and community, free from abuse and neglect.
