St. Helens Safeguarding Children Partnership

MA Escalation & Resolution

When to use the multi-agency escalation & resolution procedure... 

All professionals across the borough working with children, young people and families need to know what to do about a case where they are worries that professionals are not working well together and as a result a child is not making good enough progress or is at risk.

Changes to Multi-Agency Escalations

As of 1st December 2020, we have modified the system to ensure that all escalations come to a central point regardless of stage in the process.

This is so that we can gather data on those areas of discussion that take place prior to escalation were differences of opinion are solved at an earlier stage.

To help us we are asking that you lodge all levels of challenge with us now to enable us to gather data as to how effectively the system is working. Thank you for your help in this change. Please feel free to contact us with any feedback

The new email for all things regarding dispute and escalation is: SCPescalations@sthelens.gov.uk
