Welcome to Southampton Safeguarding Children Partnership


Southampton Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP) is a statutory body that leads on keeping children safe and ensuring their wellbeing in Southampton. The Partnership includes local agencies who work together to make sure that child protection services in Southampton are effective and keep our children safe. On this website you will find links to safeguarding policies, procedures, Safeguarding Child Practice Reviews and training.

Telephone 999 if there is an emergency and a child is in immediate danger.

Anyone who has concerns about a child’s welfare should contact Children’s Social Care, and should do so immediately if there is a concern that the child is suffering significant harm or is likely to do so. Practitioners who make a referral should always follow up their concerns if they are not satisfied with the response (source: Working Together to Safeguard Children, 2018)
