We are delighted to be promoting, together, our first joint protocol, by the West Sussex Safeguarding Adults Board and Safeguarding Children’s Partnership. It is for Safeguarding Young People who are aged 17.5 and above and, provides details of the practice required and process to be followed, by all in West Sussex, for safeguarding our transitional young people.
It appears that there is just one other protocol of this kind nationally despite the important need for clear guidance and processes for safeguarding young people.
This protocol has been published with an accompanying learning briefing and, podcast with a young person’s voice over. You can access these by clicking on the links below:
