Welcome to your Pan Sussex Child Protection and Safeguarding Procedures Manual
The pan- Sussex Child Protection and Safeguarding Policies and Procedures Subgroup review chapters on a rotational basis.
The website will be updated on an ‘as and when needed’ basis in response to the challenges to the safeguarding system presented by the COVID-19 crisis.
As of 8 July the pan Sussex Child Protection and Safeguarding Procedures Group has decided to revert to the substantive procedures on the transfer of case responsibility between local authorities when families move to a new local authority area. This is in light of updated Government guidance on travel and working arrangements.
The pan Sussex Child Protection and Safeguarding Procedures Group suggest that transfer requests are managed on a case by case basis over the course of the next six weeks to avoid significant increases in demand for resources in authorities experiencing a large number of transfer in requests.
As we have previously stated we strongly urge all agencies to work together to safeguard children and to recognise that each agency and service will be experiencing their own challenges.
