Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Norfolk Local Safeguarding Children Boards were funded by the Department for Education (DfE) to undertake an innovative project that pools knowledge and concerns across the Boards to improve the effectiveness of safeguarding practice.

The three Boards had shared concerns about the way agencies work with Eastern European migrant families, particularly around the identification of safeguarding risks and delivering effective interventions with children and young people. Originally the proposal was to complete this project
within a two year timeframe; however, the constrictions around funding criteria meant that there was only one year in which to complete this work.
