Breaking new ground with West Midland Procedures Group

Date: Tuesday, 11th April 2017 | Category: , , , , , ,

We are proud to say we have recently launched the new website for West Midlands Safeguarding Children Procedures Group.

This is the first time that a total of ten Boards from across a region have joined together to produce one central hub of information.

The strategic move to adopt a more regional approach to multi-agency working in regards to safeguarding is partly due to the fact so many partner organisations such as the police, probation, health and many others cover areas that overlap and span many boundaries across the West Midlands.

The Boards included in this project are:

  • Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board
  • Dudley Safeguarding Children Board
  • Herefordshire Safeguarding Children Board
  • Sandwell Safeguarding Children Board
  • Shropshire Safeguarding Children Board
  • Solihull Safeguarding Children Board
  • Telford & Wrekin Safeguarding Children Board
  • Walsall Safeguarding Children Board
  • Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children Board
  • Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board

As with all our other safeguarding products, Phew’s procedures sites have been built in collaboration with Safeguarding Boards to ensure their design and features save Boards time and resources. The user-friendly template has proven popular with users for its innovative design and functionality, allowing for simple, straight-forward navigation.

“Phew have provided an unparalleled solution to building consistency and clarity in safeguarding procedures and policies across a significant cross-section of the West Midlands. The ten LSCBs involved in this project felt that it would be sensible to move to a more regional approach to multi-agency working around safeguarding, especially in light of the fact that so many partner organisations span an area that crosses local authority boundaries. Phew’s approach and solution – within the confines of a tight timescale – met the collective needs of the LSCBs in a cost-effective way without compromising on quality.  Having worked with Phew on other projects, they as always supported us through the process demystifying technology and delivering what they said, when they said and how they said in a professional and accessible way.”
