Multi-agency safeguarding arrangements

The National Children’s Bureau (NCB) has published an interim report describing the activity of the Safeguarding early adopters programme. NCB is working with 17 Early Adopter (EA) projects to put in place new local arrangements for multi-agency safeguarding as set out in Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018. The interim report describes the activity of the programme to date and the approaches which EA projects are testing and implementing. Topics to be explored in upcoming activity include: practice issues; the role of the designated health professional; and a format for transfer of activity from the Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) to the new multi-agency safeguarding partnership.
