Better Together Policy Forum Safeguarding through COVID and beyond

Friday 16th April 2021 held online via Microsoft Teams

This is the fifth policy forum, led by the Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS). They are planned to address policy themes which affect our communities and the ways we work as a sector. According to the theme, relevant public sector partners and commissioners will be invited to participate with our colleagues from the VCS.

The theme of this forum was ‘Safeguarding: through COVID and beyond’.' There were updates from the Safeguarding Adults Partnership, the Safeguarding Children Partnership and a sector perspective from a range of voluntary and community organisations. There was also a discussion on the impact of COVID-19 on safeguarding.
