The latest WSCB annual report has now been published. Read More...

An introduction from Alan Coe, Independent Chairperson of Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children Board

Welcome to the Annual Report of Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB) for 2015/16.

This report provides an account of the work undertaken by the Board and its multi-agency partners over the last year and demonstrates the extent to which the Board is making a difference to the safeguarding of children and young people and to the impact and effectiveness of front line services in our city.

Children and young people have a right to be safe and feel safe. This is a responsibility of us all, not just the professionals. To ensure this happens, we all have to work together in partnership to help children and young people identify and avoid risky situations and intervene when they are in danger.

That is easy to say but a continuing challenge to do. The continuing revelations nationally about stories of neglect, sexual exploitation and physical abuse of children remind us of the reasons why we must continue to be vigilant as no town or city is immune to experiencing similar issues.

Our Annual Report gives information about the extent of child protection activity in Wolverhampton and how agencies are working together to help keep children and young people safe. It identifies what we have all done over the past 12 months to make improvements both in terms of better practice and better systems. Most importantly, it gives examples of how outcomes for children and young people have improved – how they have felt safer as a result of the work of police officers, nurses, doctors, teachers, social workers and the host of voluntary and organised groups that support children.
