The Suffolk Safeguarding Partnership (Suffolk County Council, Suffolk Police, Suffolk Healthcare services) works to protect children and young people and adults at risk of harm, neglect and exploitation in Suffolk.
Any person can be at risk of harm or abuse, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or religion.
The law protects people from maltreatment.
Suffolk Safeguarding Partnership is responsible for carrying out that statutory duty of care to/for you.
An independent chair person, Anthony Douglas CBE, leads the partnership and ensures accountability and transparency in delivering these safeguarding arrangements.
As a partnership we will work to:
Prevent abuse and neglect from happening
Promote wellbeing and safety
Effectively respond quickly to reports of abuse and neglect
Hold our partners and other agencies to account for undertaking this duty and scrutinise safeguarding actions and outcomes
