Policies and procedures

A core function of Salford Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP) is developing procedures and policies for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. 

Greater Manchester Procedures were adopted from 19th March 2013, however some local policies and procedures remain in place and can be accessed at the bottom of this page.

Greater Manchester Safeguarding Procedures

Direct access to the Greater Manchester (GM) Safeguarding Children Procedures Manual is available.

Pathways from GM procedures to Salford practice

The introduction of GM-wide procedures will lead to increased consistency of practice. But there will, for the time being, still be some local variations. In this section we describe how, for specific procedures, the GM versions should be interpreted for implementation in Salford. This is where 'Pathway Guidance' will assist. The Pathway Guidance can be accessed here (LINK).
