Local Safeguarding Children Board
Every young person has a right to be safe and Suffolk Safeguarding Partnership (SSP) work with lots of different organisations including police, fire, health, schools and social workers, to make sure that they are all working together and doing what they can to keep children and young people safe from any type of harm or neglect. We want Suffolk to be a safe place for children and young people to grow up.
All adults have a responsibility to protect children and young people and the agencies that work with the SSP are called our Partners. Safeguarding is essentially just another way of saying ‘keeping children and young people safe’ and wherever they are and whatever they are doing, whether at home, at school or online, young people have the right to to feel safe and happy, be healthy, have an education and a home and grow up safe from people hurting them or failing to ensure that they are cared for.
