Child sad

Bolton Safeguarding Children Partnership's (BSCP) vision is to give all our children the best possible start in life, so that they have every chance to succeed, be safe and be happy. Led by the three statutory partners (Bolton Council, Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group and Greater Manchester Police) the partnership, through its safeguarding arrangements aims to support and enable local organisations and agencies to work together in a safeguarding system where:

  • Children are safeguarded, and their welfare promoted
  • Partner organisations and agencies collaborate, share and co-own the vision for how to achieve improved outcomes for vulnerable children
  • Organisations and agencies challenge appropriately and hold one another to account effectively
  • There is early identification and analysis of new safeguarding issues and emerging threats Learning is promoted and embedded in a way that local services for children and families can become more reflective and implement changes to practice
  • Information is shared effectively to facilitate more accurate and timely decision making for children and families
  • Tackling disadvantage and promoting equality for all children
