Future changes to local arrangements for safeguarding children

From 29 September the arrangements for local safeguarding children boards will cease to exist and in their place will be the new Safeguarding Children Partnership arrangements. Morecambe Bay CCG will be covered by three partnerships; Cumbria, Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool & Lancashire and North Yorkshire.

As required by the Children and Social Work Act (2017) the new arrangements are published below and have been agreed by the safeguarding partners across the relevant local authority areas.

The partners will work together over the coming months to enable the successful implementation of the partnerships with effect from 29 September.

Take a look at the details of the new arrangements for each partnership below:
