National guidance on policy and procedure related to keeping children safe

In Essex there are seven organisations who are jointly responsible by law for the partnership arrangements for keeping children safe:

• Essex County Council
• Essex Police
• Five of the seven Clinical Commissioning Groups covering the county of Essex


These are known as the Statutory Partners and they have identified relevant agencies which are legally required to cooperate with local safeguarding arrangements, including Education, Essex Council for Voluntary Youth Services (ECVYS), District, City & Borough Councils, Office of Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner, National Probation Service, Community Rehabilitation Company. 


The local safeguarding arrangements can be found below.
