Trafford Strategic Safeguarding Partnership (TSSP) is a statutory organisation whose main objective is to coordinate and ensure the effectiveness of work that is done in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults of all ages in Trafford.
Since June 2018 Trafford’s safeguarding arrangements have been streamlined into a single strategic safeguarding board that brings together public agencies, the third sector and local communities with a common purpose – to make Trafford a safer and stronger place for all our residents.
In Trafford we strongly believe that safeguarding children is everyone’s business, we also believe that to effectively safeguard children we must also empower and safeguard adults. This approach has led to innovative and creative working across our services and within our communities, and we are beginning to see the benefits, both in terms of stronger and more joined up service responses, but also in a clear shared vision that is based on achieving the very best outcomes for our children, young people and adults.
The Trafford Multi-Agency Safeguarding Partnership (MASA) under the banner of the Strategic Safeguarding Partnership is much wider than the three public agencies who provide leadership and direction to the Board, it brings in partners from across all sectors, supports and develops our workforce and recognises the importance of involving local people.
We will continue to develop and strengthen the partnership by working together and remaining focused on our shared goal of a safe and strong place in which our children thrive.
