Welcome to Inverclyde Child Protection Committee Website

ICPC logoInverclyde Child Protection Committee is made up of senior officers from the Local Authority, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Inverclyde Community Health and Care Partnership, Police Scotland, Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration and 3rd sector organisations.  Our purpose is to work together to safeguard our children and promote their wellbeing which we do on behalf of everyone who lives or works in Inverclyde.

We believe that:-
• At all times the child or young person’s protection and welfare must come first
• Children and young people have a right to be heard, to be listened to and to be taken seriously
• Consideration must be given to a child or young person’s gender, ethnicity, culture and religious persuasion in all matters and decisions affecting them;
• Children, young people and their families have a right to be kept informed throughout any process affecting them.
