South Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership


Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland's Safeguarding Children Boards have been replaced by the South Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership.

Cleveland Police has released a video to raise awareness of child abuse and how we can continue to safeguard and protect children during the COVID-19 lockdown. Watch the video now.

South Tees Safeguarding Children Partnership (STSCP) is:

'A partnership committed to keeping children safe and working together to achieve the best possible outcomes for children and families.'

The South Tees Multi-Agency Children's Hub (MACH) was disbanded on 30 June 2020. As of 1 July 2020, if you're worried about a child, you should report it to the relevant council.

Read more about the changes.

The STSCP supports and enables local organisations and agencies in Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland to work together in a system which places the child at the heart of the process and aims to ensure that:

  • children are safeguarded and their welfare promoted;
  • partner organisations and agencies collaborate, share and co-own the vision for how to achieve improved outcomes for vulnerable children;
  • organisations and agencies challenge appropriately and hold one another to account effectively;
  • there is early identification and analysis of new safeguarding issues and emerging threats;
  • learning is promoted and embedded in a way that local services for children and families can become more reflective and implement changes to practice;
  • information is shared effectively to facilitate more accurate and timely decision making for children and families.

Professionals/practitioners from the council, health services, police, probation, schools, voluntary sector, Child and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS), and many others are represented on the STSCP.  

STSCP has a range of roles and statutory functions including:

  • developing local safeguarding policy and procedures
  • scrutinising local arrangements

eLearning courses will now be provided by Me-Learning. More information is available on the STSCP eLearning page.

You can also find out about other eLearning opportunities available.
