BSCB Annual Report 2017-18
This is my second Annual Report as Independent Chair, and as I did last year, I have already shared my Independent Chair’s Accountability Report with the Council, Health and Police Chiefs and the Executive Board. The Annual Report provides a rigorous and transparent assessment of the performance and effectiveness of partnership working to safeguard and promote the wellbeing of children and young people in Birmingham. Although there is recognition that there is still much more to be done, there is a clear commitment from all organisations to drive forward the requisite improvements in our safeguarding arrangements.
The report is also submitted to the Chief Executive and Leader of Birmingham City Council, the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chair of the Health and Wellbeing Board.
I hope you find this report useful, interesting and most of all, encouraging as to the progress being made.
Penny Thompson CBE
Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board
