Role of the NCSCP
The Nottingham City Safeguarding Children Partnership (NCSCP) is established in accordance with the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018.
The NCSCP provides the safeguarding arrangements under which the safeguarding partners and relevant agencies work together to coordinate their safeguarding services, identify and respond to the needs of children in Nottingham City, commission and publish local child safeguarding practice reviews and provide scrutiny to ensure the effectiveness of the arrangements.
Accountability for the effectiveness of safeguarding rests with the safeguarding partners through a new Strategic Leadership Group. The new arrangements provide a streamlined and improved framework for the safeguarding partnership to demand even more positive outcomes for all of our children and young people.
Child Death Review Arrangements
The child death review partners, defined as the local authority for that area and any clinical commissioning groups operating in the local authority area, are responsible for carrying out child death reviews.

Business Plan and Strategic Priorities
The NCSCP has three overarching priorities which guide its work:
- Promote, monitor, coordinate and evaluate multi-agency effectiveness in safeguarding children and young people across the child’s journey
- Strengthen and support a competent and equipped workforce that is committed to learning and developing safeguarding practice with the assurance that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility
- Evidence of the impact of NCSCP
