First Virtual Partnership Summit - A great success

Thursday 1 October 2020 5.03pm

Our first Children’s Partnership Summit: Safer Children; our new Partnership Arrangements on 16th September was attended by well over 100 professionals from across Herefordshire and beyond.

The interactive session, which was held virtually, highlighted the new safeguarding arrangements, identified a shared value base for working together to safeguard children in Herefordshire and helped professionals to to focus on key areas of practice including thresholds and levels of need. An overview of the Signs of Safety approach and how it is going to be rolled out in Herefordshire was also presented.

Attendees heard from a national expert on safeguarding children, Joanna Nicolas, alongside our Independent Scrutineer, Liz Murphy, and our three Safeguarding Partners.  Feedback from attendees both during and since the event has been excellent and we in the Partnership Team are already starting to plan our next Summit for 2021.
