The Manchester Safeguarding Partnership is a statutory body made up of organisations that work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults, children, young people and their families.
Our role is to coordinate and ensure effective safeguarding across the city of Manchester.
This website brings together information for adults, children, young people and their families; the practitioners and volunteers who work with them; and the community of Manchester, including businesses, who want to help us achieve this aim.
We recognise the need for a joined-up ‘think family’ approach to enable us to reach the highest standard of safeguarding for Manchester.
Our Communications Strategy has been developed to take into account our duties, as well as the aims and objectives from our business plans and risk registers. Find out more in our Communication & Engagement resource.
Our Learning and Development function provides practitioners and volunteers with the advice and information they need to obtain training and development.
Our Learning from Practice activities look at the outcomes from a range of reviews and audits, locally and nationally and how we can use these valuable lessons learnt to improve our practice.
This Standard represents the minimum standards expected and can be found in full in our Safeguarding Standard resource.
