Safeguarding Early Adopters - Evaluation Report of the first Calderdale Early Adopter Programme Community Engagement Event
The Department of Education (DfE), together with the Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) and the Home Office has funded 17 Early Adopter projects as part of the Safeguarding Early Adopters programme, facilitated by NCB. The projects are focused on developing, testing and implementing new multi-agency safeguarding arrangements.
In seeking to implement new statutory arrangements for children’s safeguarding, Calderdale Safeguarding Children Board’s (CSCB) bid for an Early Adopter Programme grant was based on the premise that promoting community engagement is integral to moving to a broader more diverse partnership model and the diversity of expectations and outcomes to meet the new reforms.
This report provides a brief overview of the planning process but focuses on the learning from the event itself.
