Welcome to the Interagency Safeguarding Children Procedures of the Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB) and the Nottingham City Safeguarding Children Board (NCSCB)
NOTE: Future updates of this manual will take account of the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and Working Together 2018. For further information in the meanwhile, please see tri.x Policy Briefing – Children and Social Work Act 2017.
Welcome to the latest online version of safeguarding children procedures for Nottinghamshire and Nottingham City Safeguarding Children Boards. In addition to updating the core procedures and practice guides, we have also redesigned the manual to improve clarity and ease of access. We have also reviewed the content of the Local Practice Guidance in the Additional Procedures section to avoid inconsistencies and duplication with the Safeguarding Guides.
Please use the four buttons below to link to the information you require:
- Core Safeguarding Procedures will take you to the key section of the manual for guidance concerning the investigation and assessment of child abuse;
- Safeguarding Guidance links directly to the part of the manual where more specific and detailed information about how to respond to different types of abuse is explained;
- Additional Resources were formerly known as Local resources and contains links to local practice guidance, templates and tools which will be of assistance in working with children and families;
- Report a Concern remains as a shortcut to direct anyone to the appropriate place to raise concerns about a child being harmed or ill-treated.
The Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire LSCB websites contain additional information about local news, training opportunities and learning from case reviews and can be accessed through the link at the top of this page.
Please take time to familiarise yourself with the manual and the way it works if you would like to be informed of when your manual is next updated please Register for Updates following the link from the Resources Tab. Local guidance can now be accessed through the Additional Resource Library.
