Telford and Wrekin Safeguarding Partnership 

Telford and Wrekin Safeguarding Partnership is responsible for making sure that children, young people and adults are kept safe in Telford & Wrekin. 

Following a review, the Telford & Wrekin Safeguarding Adults Board is changing. The responsibility to help and protect adults who have needs for care and support, who are experiencing or are at risk of abuse or neglect, and as a result of their needs are unable to protect themselves from abuse or neglect, children and young people are safe will now be led by the newly created Telford and Wrekin Safeguarding Partnership. The partnership will also have responsibility for safeguarding children and young people.

The new partnership includes Telford & Wrekin Council, West Mercia Police, and Telford & Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (the NHS) as well as a wide range of other partners. 

Together they are responsible for making sure that adults all ages and abilities get the protection that they need in Telford & Wrekin. The Safeguarding Partnership Arrangements for Telford & Wrekin outline how the partnership will achieve that aim.

A full copy of the Telford and Wrekin Multi Agency Safeguarding Arrangements can be found here. Alternatively, a briefing note has been created to highlight the key changes that the new arrangements bring, which can be found here.
