Affiliated Boards – our Inter Board Protocol

The MSP is affiliated to a number of other statutory boards.

Our Inter Board Protocol 
Safeguarding is everyone’s business and many different agencies and strategic partnerships are involved, working together to make the child’s journey from needing help to receiving help as quick and easy as possible.

The aim of the Manchester Inter Board Protocol is to support our key partnerships to operate effectively in terms of safeguarding by being clear about our respective roles, responsibilities and our relationship to each other.
