Joint Chief Inspectors Report on Arrangements to Safeguard Children

Joint Chief Inspectors Report on Arrangements to Safeguard Children

This report was completed by eight inspectorates, it draws on individual and joint inspection activity; it follows the two previous reports published in 2002 and 2005.

Many  improvements are reported over the past three years and these sit securely within the changing landscape of children’s services underpinned by the Children Act 2004  However, it also identifies a number of recurring issues which indicate that some children are still not well enough served by public services.

There are  a number of recommendations to improve safeguarding arrangements for children and young people. If implemented, these would support the ambitions of the Children’s Plan and lead to improvements in the quality of life for children and, indeed, their families.
