The Hartlepool Safeguarding Children Board (HSCB) is multi-agency, which means we’re made up of representatives from the Police, NHS, Council, Schools and voluntary organisations, ensuring that we all talk to each other and share information if we’re concerned about someone.
We’re responsible for developing policies and procedures for safeguarding in Hartlepool and helping with high level planning in children’s services so your school might come to our website for advice.
A big part of what we do is educating people (including parents and professionals) how to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. But there’s a lot you can do to help yourselves too! So we’ve selected some websites on safeguarding topics and brought them all together in one place. We are just starting to develop this so please keep checking to see what we have added.
