In line with legislation and regulation, the new local arrangements for safeguarding and promoting welfare of children in Surrey were approved by the three statutory Safeguarding Partners on the 16th September 2019. For Surrey, this new safeguarding partnership is known as the Surrey Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP).
The SSCP brings together representatives from different organisations and it is the key statutory mechanism for agreeing how the relevant organisations in Surrey will cooperate to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. The SSCP ensures the effectiveness of what they do and provides strategic oversight.
The three statutory Safeguarding Partners are Surrey County Council, Surrey Police, and NHS Surrey Heartlands Integrated Care Board; a statutory NHS body acting on behalf of ICBs within the Surrey geographical footprint and all NHS providers in Surrey. They form the Executive Group for the Partnership in providing the strategic direction. This Group is joined by representatives from the county’s schools and colleges; district and borough councils; and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner. Third sector representatives will also attend the Executive Group on an issue by issue basis.
