Procedures and guidance

What are the local procedures and guidance?

One of the core functions of East Riding Safeguarding Children Partnership is to develop policies and procedures including those on action taken where there are concerns about the safety and welfare of a child, including thresholds for intervention. 

We are continuing to review and update our procedures in order to ensure they reflect recent changes in legislation. If you have any queries please discuss them with your manager or child protection lead.

Assessing and providing early help

This guidance is for everyone who works with children and young people and their families in the East Riding of Yorkshire. It is about the way we can all work together, share information, and take a child-centred approach:
