Safeguarding

Safeguarding is a fundamental part of working in the youth sector, as it is everyone’s responsibility to protect children and young people from abuse, harm and neglect.

The Surrey Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP) is a multi-agency partnership of all organisations working across Surrey to protect children and young people and promote their welfare. We are engaged in all parts of the SSCP through the groups and meetings below.

SSCP Third Sector Safeguarding Network

Jo Cookes leads and chairs this quarterly meeting for third sector safeguarding leads. The purpose of the network is to encourage high standards of safeguarding across the sector, to share good practice, and to provide a conduit for communication between the sector and the SSCP on concerns, insight and emerging issues. We welcome all individuals who lead on safeguarding for their organisation to join us.
