Looking after the children of Greenwich
Supporting the volunteers and carers in the Royal Borough
Working together to keep children safe
With the current COVID-19 situation, The Greenwich Safeguarding Children Partnership are now unable to provide any face to face classroom training.
We have been busy developing webinars and e-learning modules, as well as making changes to our face to face training sessions.
We will be placing these new sessions on the Training website as they become available, so please check regularly.
Basic Induction and Working Together sessions are a priority for us, and we are working on delivering these as soon as possible.
We have successfully developed a hybrid model of training using webinars, e-learning and some face to face sessions, socially distanced in our large training rooms.
All children in Royal Greenwich, regardless of their background and circumstances, should have a happy and fulfilled childhood where they enjoy school and family life, learn, belong, grow and achieve so that they enter adulthood ready, willing and able to achieve their highest potential.
The Children and Social Work Act 2017 replaced Local Safeguarding Children Boards with new arrangements that place a shared and equal duty on the local authority, the police and the Clinical Commissioning Group to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. In June 2019, new multi-agency safeguarding arrangements have been implemented.
