Shropshire Safeguarding Community Partnership

The Shropshire Safeguarding Community Partnership (SSCP) coordinates and monitors how the services and professional staff work together to protect communities, adults and children from abuse or neglect.  It is very important that the right decisions are made to ensure that family life is supported whenever possible but that, where a child is at risk of significant harm, there is a coordinated and effective response to the situation.  

The key partner agencies who lead the work of the Partnership include the Local Authority, Police, Health, Probation and Fire Services, However everyone who works with children, adult who have needs for care and support; their families and wider communities have a key role in safeguarding and community safety.
