Welcome to The Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children Partnership
Our website brings together information for children, young people & their families, as well as the professionals who work with them.
The move from the board to the Partnership coincided with a review of the Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Adults’ Board (BSAB) and this provided an opportunity to review the chairmanship of the two, and their respective business units.
As a result, a decision was made to appoint a single Independent Chairperson for both the BSCP and the BSAB, and to merge the two once separate business units together. Therefore the joint business unit is now managed by one Safeguarding Partnership Manager, supported by a staff team who facilitate the work the multi agencies deliver to children, young people and their families throughout Buckinghamshire.
The Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children’s Partnership (BSCP) replaced the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board in 2019.
The new arrangements place the joint responsibility for safeguarding children and young people on Buckinghamshire Council, Thames Valley Police and the Clinical Commissioning Group.
The BSCP has a three year business plan that sets out the strategic objectives and priorities it wishes to adopt from April 2020 right through until March 2023.
Each year the Partnership will produce an annual report which sets out what has been achieved against the plan, and what we areas we need to refocus on in future years.
Throughout the work carried out by the BSCP there is a strong and consistent focus on ‘Making Safeguarding Personal’ and placing the individual at the centre of what we do by adopting the ethos “talk to me, hear my voice”.
The premise of such is to listen to the voices of those who need our support, to ensure that we work to the highest standards possible with this shared philosophy throughout a multi-disciplinary service.
Although it is a shame that we can’t all meet in person, we’re delighted to invite you to be part of an interactive conference on ‘LEARNING FROM SAFEGUARDING ADULT REVIEWS’ involving input from three guest speakers:
Professor Suzy Braye is an experienced independent Adult Safeguarding Consultant who will be speaking on key themes for practice improvement with a focus on mental capacity and interagency working.
Alfie Moore is an ex Police Officer of 18 years bringing his policing knowledge and experience to life in his BBC Radio 4 Comedy series IT’S A FAIR COP. Alfie skilfully blends layman explanations about the law, with very anecdotes from his own experiences.
Megan Karnes is Director of Hoarding UK a charitable organisation committed to increasing choice and control for those effected by hoarding.
As well as input from speakers there will be an opportunity to take part with audience polls and questions & answer sessions.
