CSCP 5 minute briefing

CSCP Safeguarding Groups - Theme 2 Consultation


The CSCP promote Practitioner Forums to help people who work with children and young people to learn from each other to support their role in keeping children safe.

There is an agenda for each of the forums and for the forums being held on the dates below there will be an agenda item from the CSCP Safeguarding Groups of which there are three across the county.

The aim of the CSCP Safeguarding Group is to bring the work of the CSCP Board closer to frontline practitioners in order to be able to learn from and improve safeguarding practice. The Safeguarding Group bring together the views of children, their families and professionals to inform the continuous development of services and approaches aimed at protecting children from harm and making positive differences to their lives.

As in previous Practitioner Forums we would like to undertake a consultation exercise regarding the current theme which is Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health of Children on plans (CiN, CP, CLA) Consultation
