Sefton Safeguarding Children Partnership

Practice Guidance Support for Professionals

In order to support the multi agency workforce, Sefton SCP (with thanks to Sefton Safeguarding Children Unit) has developed a suite of detailed Practice Guidance Support documents in a wide range of safeguarding children topics.

The Practice Guidance is primarily to up skill professionals (who work with children, young people and families) to increase their knowledge and allow additional information to support and improve practice.  (The guidance does not substitute Sefton SCP Procedures but are to support practitioners).
