Transition to adulthood can be a particularly challenging and vulnerable time for some young people. Working together with the North Tyneside Safeguarding Adults Board we have produced a protocol.

This protocol outlines safeguarding arrangements for young people aged 17 years and above, whose circumstances may indicate that Safeguarding Adult’s procedures may apply when they are 18. It has been developed to promote robust transitions between children and adult services. It recognises that harm is likely to continue post 18, and that abuse occurs, irrespective of age.
