The Children and Social Work Act 2017 introduced new flexible arrangements for safeguarding children. From 29 June 2019 the local authority, police and health have an equal and shared duty to work together (in partnership with other relevant agencies) to make arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children in a local area. All local areas must publish their arrangements by 29 June 2019. After which time, the local safeguarding children board for that area will cease to exist.
The cross-government safeguarding implementation board will be hosting a series of regional events for local areas to network and share learning on implementing the reforms in 2018, with further events in June 2019.
The regional event for the West Midlands will be held in Birmingham, with the venue and agenda announced in due course.
