Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Safeguarding Children Partnership

Our Safeguarding Children Partnership for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly

We are required to provide ‘Local arrangements for safeguarding and promoting welfare of children’. This is a statutory requirement under the Children Act 2004 (Section 16E). For Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, this safeguarding partnership is known as Our Safeguarding Children Partnership (OSCP). The safeguarding partners are:

  • the local authorities – Cornwall Council and the Council of the Isles of Scilly
  • the clinical commissioning group for the area – Kernow CCG
  • the chief officer of police for the area – Devon and Cornwall Police

The partnership brings together representatives from different organisations in the area. These are organisations that help to protect children from abuse and neglect. OSCP is a multi-agency forum. It agrees how the different agencies and professional groups should co-operate to safeguard children. It also provides assurance that those arrangements work effectively to bring about good outcomes for children.
