Safeguarding children and adults

We have a duty to ensure that all the services we plan and buy have systems in place to ensure children and vulnerable adults are safe. 

Our safeguarding declaration sets out our commitment to this work and we also have a safeguarding policy and strategy to support this.

We also produce annual reports, which you will find in our publications library.

There are two important groups in Sefton that bring together partners from across the different organisations that provide local services for children and adults, and we are members of these two boards:

Sefton Safeguarding Children Board

Sefton Safeguarding Adults Board

You will find information on each board's website about what to do if you have concerns about a child, young person or adult.
