Haringey Safeguarding Children Partnership

What is the Haringey Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSCP)

Safeguarding Partnerships support and enable local organisations and agencies to work together in a system where:

  • there is a clear, shared vision for how to improve outcomes for children locally across all levels of need and all types of harm:
  • there is a prompt, appropriate and effective response to ensure the protection and support of the child
  • organisations and agencies are challenged appropriately, effectively holding one another to account
  • the voice of children and families combined with the knowledge of experienced practitioners and insights from data, provides a greater understanding of the areas of strength and/or improvement within arrangements and practice
  • information is sought, analysed, shared to understand outcomes for children and identify new safeguarding risks or emerging issues
  • senior leaders promote and embed a learning culture which supports local services to become more reflective and implement changes to practice
  • senior leaders have a good knowledge and understanding about the quality of local practice and its impact on children and families

Every partnership has three named Lead Safeguarding Partners. In Haringey they are:

  • Director of Children and Young People Services
  • Detective Superintendent, Met Police
  • Director of Safeguarding NCL ICB

The delegated officers for the three lead safeguarding partners meet regularly as an Executive group to work together for the purposes of strategic decision making and holding each other to account where appropriate

Sitting under the Executive group is our Leadership Group which includes representation from Education, Voluntary Sector, Health, Police, Probation, Children's Social Care, London Fire Brigade, London Ambulance Service, CAFCASS,  Housing, Legal Services, Deputy Leader of Haringey, Community Safety, Adult Services and Public Health in recognition of the important roles they have in ensuring effective multi-agency safeguarding arrangements are in place in Haringey.

 A wider group of relevant safeguarding partners across Haringey are directly engaged with the work of the Safeguarding Children Partnership through membership of its sub groups. These multi-agency arena’s help to progress the work of the HSCP:

Quality, Performance and Outcomes – chaired by Health

Practice, Learning, Workforce and Development - chaired by Health

CSPR – chaired by Children’s Social Care

JOG – Chaired by Children’s Social Care
