The CSCB is preparing for change in response to the Children and Social Work Act 2017. Here in Croydon, the three statutory safeguarding partners (the Council, CCG and Police) have developed their proposals and shared them with the CSCB.
In developing the new proposals the aim has been to build on the strengths of the current arrangements and the improvements that have been made since the Ofsted inspection of 2017. Over the next few months we will see the establishment of three multi-agency priority groups to shape and develop partnership work around: Neglect, Vulnerable Adolescents and Children with Disabilities. The new multi-agency safeguarding arrangements will become fully operational from September 2019.

Please watch out for further information on the new arrangements over the next few months.
