Working together to safeguard adults and children in Bury

Appendix 1: 2019-2020 Strategic Priorities

The following are about scrutiny and challenging the system with specific focus on the areas below.

Where will the assurance be sought from?

  1. 'To ensure interagency safeguarding practice is informed by the lived experience of children and at-risk adults'
    • What information do we collect?
    • Linking into outcomes of access to services
    • Impact of Covid-19 on access to services
    • Service development and co-production 
  2. 'To establish effective sharing of information between all partner agencies working with children and at-risk adults'
    • Utilise the new skills using digital technology, for example CPP, adult safeguarding meetings, core groups, BISP meetings
    • Risk of technologies e.g., images
    • Issues that arise using IT esp. around information sharing and ensuring the relevant sharing to safeguard all.
  3. 'BISP should be confident that safeguarding services are accessible to every community and especially those who may be at risk'
    • Consider some targeted work with communities
    • Revisit the SCR and SAR learning
    • Also people who English isn't their first language
    • Inequalities
    • How do we safeguard people with complex mental health issues (needs unpacking)
    • People who are disenfranchised and don't meet thresholds for services or do not want to engage
    • Transition planning, children to adulthood and then into older adults 
  4. 'To reduce the risk of harm and abuse through early intervention strategies and nurturing positive relationships'.
    • Identifying system leader at neighbourhood work
    • Ensuring linking between the work and safeguarding
    • New AD for PSR needs to link in after appointment
    • ICON
    • Safe sleeping
  5. 'To ensure practitioners working with children and at-risk adults are well trained, well informed and confident in fulfilling their roles and responsibilities'
  6. To ensure that safeguarding remains effective during Covid and responds to local
