Safeguarding Children Partnership Arrangements
The Children and Social Work Act 2017 introduced significant changes to the safeguarding landscape in England, including the replacement of Local Safeguarding Children Boards with new local safeguarding partnerships led by three safeguarding partners – the Local Authority, Clinical Commissioning Group and Police.
The development of the Tower Hamlets Safeguarding Children Partnership (THSCP) is being led by an executive group consisting of the key partners including schools, colleges and the voluntary sector. The vision of the THSCP is that the statutory partners, wider relevant agencies, community and voluntary sector and residents work together to ensure that everyone does everything they can to ensure that all Tower Hamlets children and young people are safe, supported and successful.
The diagram below sets out the key milestones and timescales for the transition process:
