Birmingham and Solihull CCG has an agreed strategic approach to maintain safe and effective safeguarding services and to strengthen arrangements for safeguarding children and adults at risk from abuse and neglect across Birmingham and Solihull.
The Care Act 2014 provides that local authorities, CCGs and the chief officer of the local police must be members of the Safeguarding Adults Board. In addition, the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and statutory guidance outlines a new system for multi-agency safeguarding arrangements and child death arrangements. The CCG is an active member of Birmingham and Solihull Safeguarding Adults Board, as well as Birmingham Safeguarding Children’s Board and Solihull Local Safeguarding Children’s Board.
Other partnership board examples are: local authority community safety partnerships; early help boards; Prevent partnership boards; local and regional modern slavery and human trafficking boards.
