The Bristol Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB) is issuing new threshold guidance to assist professionals working with children and families.
The overall aims of the guidance are to:
- promote and safeguard the welfare of children and young people
- promote a consistent approach to working with vulnerable children and young people in Bristol
- promote the belief that children are best cared for in their own families and communities wherever possible
- improve outcomes for children and young people by supporting us to work together effectively
The guidance is currently in draft form and we would like to take the opportunity to receive feedback on how effectively you think the guidance will achieve those aims.
We would therefore be grateful if you could read the draft and then comment on it by completing a short survey by 29 November 2013. The final guidance will be signed off by BSCB in January and then published.
