About our work
We have several statutory partnerships that are supported by the Cheshire CCG Executive Director of Quality, Patient Experience and Safeguarding, the Designated Professionals, Named GPs and the safeguarding team. Examples include the child death review process, safeguarding children, cared for children and care leavers, safeguarding adult’s board, channel panel, Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangement [MAPPA] and community safety partnerships.
Over the coming months, our web pages will be updated; however, the below provides an overview of our work and links you to the relevant website for further information.
Every citizen lives in communities, and therefore it is essential that safeguarding is everyone's business. We are now a single commissioning organisation for NHS funded care. We work closely with other commissioners and providers of health and social care services that contribute directly to making our communities safer and to ensure that safeguarding adults and children, and community safety are taken into account throughout commissioning and service delivery.
We strategically work together through the following boards and partnerships.
- Chester West and Chester Safeguarding Children Partnership and Safeguarding Adults Board.
- Cheshire East Safeguarding Children's Partnership and Safeguarding Adults Board, and
- Safer Chester East Partnership and Chester West and Chester Community Safety Partnership.
- Care for children and care leavers, Chester East and Chester West and Chester.
We all aim to keep citizens living well and staying safe. Whether you are a child, adult with care and support needs, parent and or carer, an adult at risk or a professional, you can find further information by clicking on the links below.

Child Death Overview Arrangements
Tragically, death can occur at any age and at any time. The child death review process is about improving the experience of bereaved families and professionals involved in caring for children, and to ensure that information from the child death review process is systematically captured in every case, to enable learning to prevent future deaths.
