Information for partners and professionals

Find more information about Signs of Safety and access guides for partners and professionals.

Signs of Safety is our adopted practice framework and provides the structure and format for our assessments and plans to help and support children, young people and families.

To find out more about the Signs of Safety way of working and what this means for the partner agency and school representatives that attend our multi agency meetings, please read our Signs of Safety Guide for Partners available to download below:

It is important when making referrals to the Redcar & Cleveland Multi Agency Children’s Hub to use clear, everyday language and describe in detail the reason why you are worried about a child, so our social workers can effectively assess the risk of harm. To help you with this, please see our Signs of safety Guide for Professionals available to download below:

Our Signs of Safety framework is supported by a number of multi-agency strategic Boards including the South Tees Safeguarding Children's Partnership (formerly the Redcar & Cleveland Local Safeguarding Children’s Board) and the Children and Young People's Partnership Board.

Organisations attending these meetings have ​pledged their ​support to this way of working and committed to support our  Signs of Safety Charter which is available to download below:
