The Government has released a consultation on changes to the statutory guidance ‘Working together to safeguard children’.

The consultation is seeking views on revisions to the guidance, which sets out what is expected of organisations, individually and jointly, to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. These revisions are being made largely to reflect the legislative changes introduced through the Children and Social Work Act 2017, which are needed to support the new system of multi-agency safeguarding arrangements. 
Three main changes to the guidance include:
  • the replacement of local children safeguarding boards with local safeguarding partners;
  • the establishment of a new national child safeguarding practice review panel;
  • the transfer of responsibility for child death reviews from local safeguarding children boards to new child death review partners.
The consultation closes on 31 December 2017. Responses can be completed electronically here.
