New Children's Safeguarding Arrangements

Tuesday 25 June 2019 1.25pm

We have now published the new arrangements that will replace our Herefordshire Safeguarding Children’s Board from 29 September 2019.  

This is a national requirement in implementing Working Together 2018.  Herefordshire Council, West Mercia Police and Herefordshire NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are absolutely committed to making sure the new arrangements enhance what we do and give a central role to early years settings, schools and colleges to inform practice improvements. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the current work of the Board, and in the future arrangements.  This work will strengthen our collective approach for safeguarding children and young people.  An overview of what’s taking place can be found on the following link:
