Sunderland Safeguarding Children Partnership

About Us

The Sunderland Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP) is a multi-agency partnership which brings together agencies who work to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people across Sunderland. The aim of the partnership is to coordinate what is done by each body represented on the board, and ensuring the effectiveness of that work. Ultimately in doing our job at the SSCP we want to make a positive difference to children, young people, their families and their communities through our work in partnership.

Within the Partnership there are three statutory safeguarding partners:

  • Sunderland City Council
  • Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Northumbria Police.

These three agencies are responsible for developing the multi-agency safeguarding arrangements (MASA) for the city that will guide how they will work together, and with other relevant agencies, to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. You can read more about the SSCP MASA here.

The SSCP is supported by a Business Unit comprising:

Jen Beer, Head of Service - SSCP and Early Help, who manages the Business Unit and works with the three partners of the SSCP and relevant agencies to develop the strategic direction of the partnership ensuring they deliver against the objectives set out in strategic business plans;
