COVID-19 Information for Partners

Darlington Safeguarding Partnership recognises that COVID-19 is putting increasing pressures on services providing support to children, young people and vulnerable adults. 

Safeguarding continues to be a priority, however the Statutory Safeguarding Partners recognise that we will all have to work a little differently in relation to our Statutory Safeguarding duties and responsibilities to safeguard children and vulnerable adults in Darlington. 

Partnership working is vital during this current time and multi-agency safeguarding arrangements will continue as usual, however agencies are to be mindful that this may be undertaken in a different way whilst trying to avoid as much face to face contact as possible.

Further information on how we are working together to safeguard children and vulnerable adults in Darlington are outlined below:
