Policies, procedures and guidance

On this page you will find the Children’s MARS Policies and Procedures.

Working Together 2018 provides statutory guidance on inter-agency working and outlines how agencies should respond individually and collectively to concerns related to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.

It also includes guidance on, organisational responsibilities, multi-agency safeguarding arrangements, child safeguarding practice reviews and child death reviews. It provides links to relevant supplementary guidance that practitioners should consider. Our procedures reflect Working Together 2018 and are in two sections – statutory and supplementary.

Individual agency procedures must be compliant with the statutory Working Together guidance
