BSCP Annual Reports, Independent Scrutiny reports & Business Plans
Our annual reports are published in line with Working Together 2018 and provides an update on our activities and impact over the past year.
BSCP is pleased to publish the 2021-22 Annual Report. The Annual Report provides an overview of multi agency safeguarding practice over the period September 2021 - September 2022, key learning and impact upon the local system of practice change and, for the first time, an overview of outcomes as a result of our focus upon shared safeguarding themes of: neglect; domestic abuse; teenage suicide and self harm; and learning from serious youth violence.
BSCP is also pleased to publish its third independent scrutiny report . Tasked with scrutinizing the effectiveness of our multi agency safeguarding arrangements, it was outlined by the team of scrutineers that: “Our confident judgement is that the Multi-agency Safeguarding Arrangements for Barnet Safeguarding Children Partnership continue to comply with Working Together, 2018. There are robust partnership arrangements to ensure that children in Barnet are safeguarded and their welfare promoted. The last year has consolidated and strengthened the Partnership arrangements, even though there have been significant [structural] changes within one of the partner agencies (NCL ICB), with clear evidence that key partners have further stepped up to their responsibilities in the Partnership and are involved and committed. There continues to be a culture of openness, respectful challenge, and a willingness to learn, which has positively impacted children and families in Barnet. Hearing and acting upon the voice of children and young people is a significant strength in Barnet, which has been further reinforced by the innovative participation of children, young people, and their families.”
Our 2023/24 Business Plan can also be found here which outines our shared safeguarding themes and priorities for the next year.
