South West Child Protection Procedures is a joint tool by the South West Local Safeguarding Children Boards in co-operation with tri.x. The website aims to provide the most up to date information about policies and procedures relating to safeguarding children. It contains both shared procedures as well as more specific local guidance for each of the 12 LSCBs that were involved in its development. All the information is based on current legislation and up to date national policy and is updated regularly.
SWCPP is the go to website for practitioners who need clarification about policies and procedures or who are unsure about how to respond to a safeguarding issue they encounter during their work. This is a great tool to support safeguarding practice and provide a consistent approach as to how we safeguard children and young people and should be used regularly by practitioners.
We would like to encourage all agencies to disseminate this message within their organisations and ensure that all of their practitioners are aware of SWCPP and how to use it in order to stay up to date with safeguarding procedures.
