Families and Children Transformation programme

Families and Children Transformation programme

Taking a whole-system approach with corporate partners, staff, children, young people and their families we will streamline and improve the way we work, promoting multi-agency integration and enabling us to be more efficient in the delivery of our services and more effective at helping families and children achieve positive outcomes.

As part of our shared vision and shared Practice Framework we will empower professionals to maximise the time spent with families, providing early support to prevent escalation and ensuring that our children thrive in their own communities.

Golden Threads

As you will see from the workstream diagram below as well as 8 workstreams, within which there are a number of individual projects there will also be a focus on the 7 golden threads.

 

The Forum encourages all its members to join a work stream and contribute to this project.  If you would like more information please contact FACT@wiltshire.gov.uk.

WSCB

WSCB undertakes work with all of its members to review how well local organisations are working together to protect children from abuse and neglect.

Members have been reviewing a new Quality Assurance Framework which aims to examine the effectiveness of culture and leadership, the role of each agency, the strength of operational partnership working, the impact of the system on outcomes for children and identifying unseen risk. Members of the Board have identified a need to change the way we are approaching this essential work.

In September 2019, the statutory requirement to have an LSCB will end. Work is underway to plan how Wiltshire Police, Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Wiltshire Council will meet new requirements to make arrangements locally to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in their area. Further discussions have taken place to bring together key partners to assess potential to work more effectively across a broader public protection agenda. When the new plans are published they will include detail on how we will ensure our local approach is robust and that there is thorough independent scrutiny of our system.
