Somerset Safeguarding Children Partnership recognises the importance of keeping practitioners up to date with the latest research, knowledge and best practice available in child protection. Training is developed to provide a multi-agency experience which complements the single-agency and professional learning opportunities offered by individual agencies.

Due to the continuing COVID19 global pandemic restrictions we are delivering all Working Together to Safeguard Children for Designated Safeguarding Leads and Working Together Update training sessions online until further notice.

Thank you for your understanding during these uncertain times.
