  • Local Area Specific Safeguarding Information and Procedures - developed in Wolverhampton, and containing local contacts, processes and structures.

BACKGROUND TO THE INTRODUCTION OF THE NEW SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN PROCEDURES

A joint project proposal was successfully submitted to the DfE by all of the West Midlands Safeguarding Children Boards to develop regional safeguarding children procedures. This development is designed to have a range of benefits including:

  • ​​supporting the many partner organisations (including Police, Probation, Health and many others) whose work crosses Local Authority boundaries
  • reducing duplication of effort
  • saving money through reducing duplication of development and hosting costs
