Developing the Learning on Multi-agency Safeguarding Arrangements
The National Children’s Bureau (NCB) is working with the 17 Early Adopters (EA) to draw together the lessons learnt as they develop, test and implement their new Multi-agency Safeguarding Arrangements. You can read more about the Safeguarding Early Adopters programme here. This interim report showcases the early work of the EA projects, and highlights the key learning and common themes which have arisen so far.
The report describes the activity of the programme to date, the approaches which EA projects are testing and implementing, and shares some early principles for implementation. We focus primarily on the activity and emerging solutions in relation to independent scrutiny, local reviews and child death reviews, the role of wider partners, and resourcing new arrangements, alongside some learning examples across the themes.
The next steps for the programme are identified. As an interim report, this is a snapshot of progress to date, and further findings and resources will be shared as the programme progresses. We are keen to support areas outside of the EA programme to be able to utilise the tools, resources and learning from the EA projects. We will therefore continue to share activity and emerging learning, host a national learning event in June 2019,and will publish a final report in July 2019.
