This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Safeguarding Partnership Co-ordinator, Maryam Mahmood for the attention of All Schools.
Everyone has a role in keeping people safe in Slough; it is a concern for all of us. Parents/carers, those caring for vulnerable adults do all they can to safeguard their loved ones from harm. All agencies working with families also have formal responsibilities around safeguarding. The Safeguarding Partnership brings together all those partner agencies to ensure we have a co-ordinated approach. There are over 120 people involved in our partnership and they are actively working together to continually improve how we keep people safe.
The Safe in Slough Executive group leads and directs the work of the partnership, setting priorities and scrutinising progress. It brings together the safeguarding children, safeguarding adults, and community safety leads to ensure we have a cohesive approach to keeping people safe in Slough. This group has a Strategic Plan, and this is delivered by a range of sub-groups. See the link below for all the information about the partnership.
The group revises its plans and arrangements regularly and following a recent awayday looking at systems leadership, a summit is being planned for next Spring. This involves bringing together all those involved in the partnership to agree on priorities, what we do next, how we do it and ensure we are effective! We are currently looking at dates so will send information out soon.
If you work or volunteer in Slough, your organisation will be represented in this partnership. Talk to your line manager or take a look at our website https://safeinslough.org/ for more information and detail on legislative requirements etc.
