Shropshire Safeguarding Partnership (SSP)
The Shropshire Safeguarding Partnership (SSP) coordinates and monitors how the services and professional staff work together to protect 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 agencies involved in protecting children can include the Police, Education, Health, Probation, the voluntary sector and other organisations who work with children as well as Children's Social Care who have the lead responsibility.
For more information on the work of SSP's Children's Network including safeguarding training and how to make a referral if you have concerns for a child, please select the link to the SSP website.
