North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership

The Children and Social Work Act (2017) and Working Together to Safeguarding Children (2018), removed the statutory requirement for North Yorkshire to have a Local Safeguarding Children Board.

As a result, the three statutory safeguarding partners in North Yorkshire:

  • North Yorkshire County Council
  • North Yorkshire Police
  • North Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Groups

in consultation with the relevant agencies agreed the new multi-agency safeguarding arrangements for North Yorkshire as set out in the Children and Social Work Act (2017).

North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NYSCP) undertakes the work of formerly of North Yorkshire Children's Trust and North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board with the aim to ensure all children in North Yorkshire are safe, happy, healthy and achieving.

NYSCP is not the appropriate team to contact if you have a safeguarding concern about a child. If are worried about a child or young person and need to speak to somebody in relation to their safety and wellbeing, please click here to view the Worried About a Child page.

If you have a query, comment, or would like to raise an issue about the work North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Partnership does, simply complete our contact form here, and a member of the team will get back to you.
