Working Together (2023) Briefing

Many of you will be aware that in December 2023 the government published Working Together to Safeguard Children (2023) alongside a range of other publications relating to children social care and keeping children safe. In February the Newcastle Safeguarding Children Partnership (NSCP) delivered a briefing session and produced a practitioner guide providing an overview of some of the key changes detailed in these documents. The practitioner guide is available here, and a recording of the briefing remains available here.

On the 26th of June the NSCP are pleased to host an online session delivered by Deborah McMillan providing a detailed overview of Working Together (2023). Deborah is a National Safeguarding Partner Facilitator for the Department of Education.

This session is for all staff who work with children and young people including children’s services, local authority, health, police, education and the community, voluntary and faith sectors. Working Together outlines what organisations and agencies must do to protect, safeguard and support children and young people. Some key updates include: multi-agency expectations for all practitioners

working with parents and families; clarifying the roles and responsibilities of safeguarding partners; the role of education and childcare providers; multi-agency practice standards; support for disabled children; and tackling harm that occurs outside the home.
