Safeguarding Children in Leicestershire and Rutland

Safeguarding the most vulnerable children in our area is a high priority for organisations in Leicestershire and Rutland.

The Leicestershire and Rutland Safeguarding Children Partnership brings together organisations from across the two counties to oversee the multi-agency safeguarding children arrangements as required by the government guidance Working Together 2018.

Our vision is for children & young people in Leicestershire and Rutland to be safe, well and achieve their full potential.

To work towards this the partnership will oversee organisations working together to safeguard children with a focus on reviewing, learning and improving practice.
