BSCB Annual Report 2016-17

This is my Independent Chair’s report for the Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board, reviewing 2016/17, my first year as Independent Chair of the Board.

I commend the contents of the report highlighting as it does the contribution of partners, charting an increasingly positive impact on the life of children, young people and families in Birmingham. I present a report which I hope recognises that our second City is on an improvement journey as far as services safeguarding the wellbeing of children and young people are judged to be effective. There remains a way to go.

Penny Thompson CBE
BSCB Independent Chair
