On the 1st March 2013 Stockport Safeguarding Children Board amalgamated with the Greater Manchester Safeguarding Partnership to have a shared set of policies.
These Greater Manchester Safeguarding Procedures have been developed and implemented through the co-ordination of the Greater Manchester Safeguarding Partnership working with Tri.x.
A nominated policies sub-group will continue to review these and they will be subject to regular update and amendment. This is a work in progress and there are some policies that require more work or collaboration.
