In line with Working Together 2015, Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children Board has a business plan with a set of key priorities that are reviewed every 3 years. The business plan needs to ensure that:

  1. There are effective safeguarding arrangements in place through a demonstrated commitment of partner agencies by attending Board meetings, and by having an adequately resourced Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children Board.
  2. Policy and procedures are in place, regularly reviewed and updated in line with new legislative and statutory guidance to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people - see WSCB Policies and Procedures
  3. That the requirements to safeguard children and young people are consistently applied to all children living away from home and to children with disabilities.
  4. To monitor what is done by the Board agencies individually and collectively to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and to advise on ways to improve, by completing a bi-annual agency Section 11 Compliance monitoring document.
  5. To communicate to the community, agencies and organisations the need to safeguard children by raising awareness of how they can do this and encouraging them to do so.
  6. To make sure all those who work with children are 'suitable' by ensuring appropriate selection and recruitment standards are in place which comply with ISA registration (Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006).
  7. To respond to the requirements identified by the Licensing Acts.
  8. To review and investigate Serious Case Reviews and Unexpected Childhood Deaths.
  9. To ensure the continuous development of services to safeguard and promote the welfare of Children and Young People.
  10. To develop the skills and knowledge of workers in relation to safeguarding children in conjunction with the Children's Workforce Strategic lead through the provision of a comprehensive training development and support programme see WSCB/WSAB Learning and Improvement Framework 2017-19
