NEW Strategic Plan for Warwickshire Safeguarding

Warwickshire Safeguarding has introduced a new model for safeguarding which allows it to develop a family focused approach to working across the wider policy and partnership landscape. The model develops new ways of working and identifies opportunities that reduce duplication and improve practice and outcomes for children, young people and adults across the safeguarding pathway. Warwickshire Safeguarding new arrangements have been built on the strengths of the previous arrangements under Warwickshire Safeguarding Adults Board (WSAB) and Warwickshire Safeguarding Children’s Board (WSCB) to support and enable local agencies to work together in a system where:

  • Excellent practice is the norm
  • Partners work collaboratively to achieve the same end goals
  • Partner agencies hold one another to account effectively
  • There is early identification of 'new' safeguarding issues
  • Learning is promoted and embedded
  • Information is shared effectively
  • The public can feel confident that children and adults are protected from harm

The production of a Strategic Plan is a statutory requirement. The Strategic Plan sets out our shared vision and actions that will help keep children, young people and adults at risk safe and protected from abuse and neglect. The Strategic Plan provides an overview of local safeguarding arrangements under the overarching umbrella of Warwickshire Safeguarding and sets out its strategic priority areas of focus for 2019-2021.

WARWICKSHIRE SAFEGUARDING - New partnership arrangements for safeguarding children and adults

Warwickshire is introducing a new, integrated model for safeguarding children and adults in the county. This means that the Warwickshire Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB) and Warwickshire Safeguarding Adults Board (WSAB) will be replaced by a single body called Safeguarding Warwickshire.

The new model will build on the strengths of both pre-existing safeguarding boards to enable the partnership to develop new ways of working, avoid duplication, and improve outcomes for children, young people and adults.

NEW - Think Family Guidance

WARWICKSHIRE THINK FAMILY
Protocol and Practice Guidance

The Warwickshire Think Family Protocol is a joint commitment of the Warwickshire Safeguarding Adults Board and Warwickshire Safeguarding Children’s Board. It promotes a ‘Think Family’ approach by all partner agencies.

Everyone has a responsibility to take a ‘Think Family’ approach in the context of safeguarding children and adults. Warwickshire Safeguarding Adults Board (WSAB) and Warwickshire Safeguarding Children’s Board (WSCB) recognise this to be a shared responsibility which must be at the heart of practice across all partner agencies working to support adults or children at risk of abuse and neglect in Warwickshire.
