The 2 X Complex Safeguarding posts were previously resourced through secondment agreements with individual LAs but it has been agreed that the GMCA will now host these posts with funding provided through £26k contribution from each Local Authority. The staff will require laptops and phones in order to operate from the GMCA. This proposal is to use a proportion of the LA contribution for this purpose.


Essential equipment costs to be allocated in order to establish and base complex safeguarding officers at the Greater Manchester Combined Authority. This funding is sourced via the 10 GM district local authorities via Directors of Children’s Services.
