New Safeguarding Arrangements for Swindon

 Swindon Safeguarding Partnership

The transition to the new Swindon Safeguarding Partnership came into effect on Sunday, 28 July 2019.  The Swindon Safeguarding Executive has been established to oversee the new Multi-Agency Safeguarding Arrangements for children (formerly the LCSB) and adults at risk (LSAB) in response to the recent government guidance Working Together 2018.  The lead representatives on the Executive are David Haley, Corporate Director Children's Services (SBC), Sue Wald, Corporate Director Adult Services and Health SBC), Gill May, Director of Nursing and Transformation (CCG), and Mark Cooper, Assistant Chief Constable for Crime, Justice and Vulnerability (Wiltshire Police).

The safeguarding partners in Swindon are committed to a partnership model that focuses on continuous learning and improvement with a clear line of sight on frontline safeguarding practice. The partners will promote a shared commitment to work together to improve outcomes for children and adults at risk.

The Swindon Safeguarding Partnership will support, enable and challenge each other to work together to:

·  Provide effective and informed leadership to the local safeguarding system;

·  Deliver their shared responsibility for the safeguarding of children, young people and adults at risk in the borough;

·  Promote positive working relationships with each other and children, adults and families;

·  Identify and act on learning, and

·  Provide assurance to the Swindon community

The Swindon Safeguarding Partnership believes that effective safeguarding is founded on practitioners developing lasting and trusting relationships with the children and adults they work with as well as each other. The Partnership will look beyond organisational constraints and boundaries to build a culture which improves outcomes for all. The partnership has agreed a behaviours framework that promotes and delivers: accountability, openness, trust, innovation, commitment, respectfulness, curiosity and collaboration.
