In the light of the Wood Review of Local Safeguarding Children Boards, and the Government’s Response, the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Safeguarding Children Board has agreed to amend its arrangements and to establish a Safeguarding Children Partnership.

All policies and procedures from the Safeguarding Children Board will be carried forward and work will be undertaken to formally update the website in due course.

Keeping children safe is everyone's responsibility. The information on this website is relevant to those working in the statutory or independent sectors, as well as to members of the wider community.

It applies to all children and young people irrespective of whether they are living at home with their families and carers or away from home.

If you have concerns regarding a vulnerable adult or would like further information regarding adult safeguarding, please visit the Safeguarding Adults website.
