Haringey Safeguarding Children Partnership
Arrangements for safeguarding children in England have changed. The Haringey Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) has been replaced by the Haringey Safeguarding Children Partnership. These new arrangements came into effect on 29th June 2019.
The Haringey Safeguarding Children's Partnership (HSCP) provides the safeguarding arrangements under which the safeguarding partners and relevant agencies work together to coordinate their safeguarding services. The partnership is responsible for identifying and responding to the needs of children in Haringey, commissioning and publishing local child safeguarding practice reviews and providing scrutiny to ensure the effectiveness of the safeguarding arrangements.
The Haringey Safeguarding Children’s Partnership (HSCP) continues to be independently chaired. Three ‘key safeguarding partners’ – the Local Authority (through Children and Families), Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) and Police now collectively hold statutory responsibilities for safeguarding arrangements.
