Welcome to the Annual Report of the North Somerset Safeguarding Children Board (NSSCB) for the period April 2018 to March 2019. Last year’s report discussed the forthcoming changes to multi-agency safeguarding arrangements. These changes, as outlined in the Children and Social Work Act 2017, mean that this will be my final report.
This report, which reflects the activity of the Board and its sub-groups provides details on our work over the past year. As we mentioned last year, we have chosen not to duplicate information already reported. We invite you to make use of the Board’s, and our partner's, websites for more detailed information.
For 2018/19, we chose to keep and progress our priorities from the previous year:
- Early Intervention
- Sexual Exploitation/Missing
- Domestic Abuse
The development of these priorities is detailed in our Strategic Business Plan below.
