Our work as a partnership is supported through the following sub groups:
- Quality and Performance
This group uses audit, performance data and intelligence to assess the effectiveness of the help being provided to children and families, including Early Help.
- Case Review
This group provides for the decision-making and commissioning of local child safeguarding practice reviews (CSPRs), previously referred to as Serious Case Reviews. These are required when a child has died or been seriously harmed and abuse or neglect of that child is known or suspected. The purpose of a CSPR is to learn lesson and identify improvements to be made to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, rather than apportioning blame. Further details is given in Working Together 2018 chapter 4.
Details of serious case reviews or child safeguarding practice reviews undertaken by Doncaster are published on this page (hyperlink).
- Keeping Safe
This is a joint sub group with the Adult Safeguarding Board with a focus on workforce development, learning, communications and wider community engagement, including promotion of the voice of children and family service users.
- Child Exploitation and Missing Sub Group
The area of concern of this group includes Child Sexual Exploitation, Child Criminal Exploitation, county lines, trafficked children and children missing from home and care. This sub-group also links into the Safer Stronger Doncaster Partnership (community safety).
- Child Death Overview Panel
Currently this panel sits under the Safeguarding Children’s Partnership, however the new statutory guidance in Working Together 2018 Chapter 5 has provided an opportunity to review future administration and governance arrangements including developing existing sub-regional arrangements to further develop thematic learning.
