DSCP Vision and Values
Durham DSCP Annual Report 2017/18 – Safeguarding Children in County Durham
The Durham Safeguarding Children Partnership has a statutory duty to prepare and publish an Annual Report which describes how our partners safeguard vulnerable children and young people in County Durham. The report gives an account of the Board’s work over the past year to improve the safety and wellbeing of children and young people. The report describes the local governance arrangements and structure of Durham DSCP, the linkages to other strategic partnerships across County Durham and the work undertaken against the 2016-17 priorities.

DSCP Annual Report for Young People 2018
The DSCP has developed an interactive DSCP Annual Report for Young People 2018. The Annual Report for Young People is best viewed on a computer, tablet or smartphone.
Each local area is required by Law to have an DSCP. The DSCP’s primary responsibility is to provide a way for local organisations that have a responsibility in respect of child welfare, to agree how they will work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in County Durham and to ensure that they do so effectively.
