About Us

The GMSP will undertake developments and activities on behalf of the 10 Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs) and report back to them regularly.


Every LSCB has a nominated member on the Greater Manchester Safeguarding Partnership. Key partner agencies also have at least one nominated member, including the Police, PCTs, Probation Service, Coroner’s Service, Youth Offending Services and Social Care Services. The Strategic Health Authority and Greater Manchester Police Authority are co-opted members. For all partner agencies there will be benefits from a consistent interface with Greater Manchester authorities leading to an increase in commonality of approach which will result in efficiencies and economies of scale
