Safeguarding Partnership Arrangements for Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire new safeguarding arrangements as set out in Working Together 2018.

Formally The Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Board trainsitioned into Northamptonshire Safeguarding Children Partnership.

The main changes to the partnership arrangements were as follows:

There are now four organisations in Northamptonshire who are jointly responsible for the partnership arrangements for keeping children safe:

  • North Northamptonshire Council
  • West Northamptonshire Council
  • Northamptonshire Police
  • Northamptonshire Integrated Care Board

The Partnership adopted a new structure which includes someone independent who will challenge its work and focus on learning.

At the heart of the arrangements is a commitment from all agencies to work together to keep children safe and to continuously improve working practices and to learn how to best do this.

For 2023 we have updated our partnership governance arrangements which can be found in the following document.
