The 2018/19 Annual Report, and summary/infographic, for the Hampshire Safeguarding Children Board (HSCB) has now been published and can be viewed below. This will be the last such report published by the HSCB as local safeguarding has now transferred to the Safeguarding Partners and Relevant Agencies (September 2019). These documents provide an overview of safeguarding activity carried out between April 2018 and March 2019.
The first joint NHS England and NHS Improvement Safeguarding Accountability and Assurance Framework (SAAF) has just been published. This framework builds on its predecessor by strengthening the NHS commitment to promoting the safety, protection and welfare of children, young people and adults.
This framework has been developed in partnership with other organisations and professional bodies. It is intended to clarify the roles and responsibilities of those we work with in a system that is developing rapidly. In addition, it provides the flexibility needed at local level to support professional practice and the partnerships needed to promote healthy behaviours to keep individuals and communities safe from harm.
