Resources for practitioners

Guidance and resources, including early help plans, safeguarding and our processes

Safeguarding resources

You can find a wide range of safeguarding information and resources on the Essex Safeguarding Children Board website.

This includes guidance on:

  • working with children
  • learning and development
  • resources for children and their carers

The site also includes Southend, Essex and Thurrock's (SET) child protection procedures.

Working together

Working Together 2018 on the GOV.UK site, sets out what organisations and agencies who work with children must and should do to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children and young people under the age of 18 in England.

Disabled children

We've put together guidance for disabled children and young people and their families and how they can get early, intensive and specialist support from us.

You can find out more about services for children and young people with disabilities on the Essex Local Offer website.
