Harmful practices online survey - for professionals
Barnet Safeguarding Children's Partnership (BSCP) has coordinated a thematic review of harmful practise throughout the borough, following from the 2018 decision to commit to gaining a better understanding of how Barnet residents are affected by harmful practices.
Subsequently, a multi-agency working group was formed in order to develop a strategy in partnership with the Adults Safeguarding Board and the VAWG team, which aims to:
- provide agencies working with people at risk of harmful practices across Barnet with information and guidance. This includes front line professionals, managers and others in the voluntary, community and faith sectors who may have contact with people at risk of, or having experienced a harmful practice
- identify what the partnership can do to support and protect those at risk through a strong prevention agenda. The partnership has a ZERO TOLERANCE approach to harmful practices with a strategic aim to reduce the incidence of harmful practices in Barnet
- support and work with local communities and faith groups in developing a zero-tolerance message, encouraging those at risk or who have experienced harmful practices to seek support, and communities to reject practices that are illegal in the United Kingdom through raising aware and educational activities.
In order to implement this strategy effectively, it is essential that we ascertain the views of affected communities as well as professionals who may have to deal with instances of harmful practices. Therefore, we are requesting that you take 5 minutes of your time to fill out the survey.
