Oldham Safeguarding Partnership has been developed by Oldham Council, Greater Manchester Police and the Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group to ensure that all children and young people in the area get the safeguarding and protection they need in order to help them to thrive.
The partnership will provide leadership and accountability for the promotion of children and young peoples’ well-being and the prevention and protection from harm. The partnership will promote a child-centred approach to safeguarding, listening to children, empowering families and, where needed, providing services that are professional, evidenced-based and effective. The partners will continuously strive to improve and challenge each other to learn the lessons from daily practice.
Safeguarding is everyone’s business and Oldham Safeguarding Partnership will provide lead responsibility in demonstrating what this means for all people and professionals living and working in the local community.
