Keeping Children and Young People Safe
We all have a responsibility to help keep children safe.
The East Riding Safeguarding Children Partnership (ERSCP) oversees and co-ordinates all of the work undertaken within the East Riding to keep children safe. It is a partnership between the East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Humberside Police and the East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group working alongside other relevant agencies.
ERSCP is not a provider of services but is responsible for coordinating and ensuring the effectiveness of services to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. East Riding Safeguarding Children Partnership and subgroups all operate on a multi-agency basis.
