Halton Children and Young People Safeguarding Partnership is a partnership of all the different organisations working to protect children and young people across the county. Their website brings together information for children, young people and their families, and the professionals who work with them. Safeguarding children and young people is everyone's responsibility. On their website you will find information regarding Halton's safeguarding procedures and what to do if you are concerned about a child.
Operation Encompass directly connects the police with schools to secure better outcomes for children who are subject, or witness, to police-attended incidents of domestic abuse. Rapid provision of support within the school environment means children are better safeguarded against the short, medium and long-term effects of domestic abuse.
If you have concerns regarding someone who works with a child, including foster carers and volunteers, these should be reported to the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) (Tel: 0151 511 7925). This applies to all paid, unpaid, volunteers, casual, agency employees or anyone working in a self-employed capacity.
