Everyone shares a responsibility for safeguarding, protecting and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults irrespective of individual roles.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Safeguarding Adults and Children Boards continues to provide a programme of high quality courses, providing an excellent opportunity to learn together with the overall aim that working together effectively leads to better improved outcomes for children, young people and adults by:
- A shared understanding of the principles, roles and responsibilities outlined in national guidance and local arrangements for safeguarding children, young people and adults.
- More effective and integrated services at both the strategic and individual case level;
- Improved communication and information sharing between professionals, including a common understanding of key terms, definitions and thresholds for action;
- Effective working relationships, including an ability to work in multi-disciplinary groups or teams;
- Learning from both local and national case review processes.
