A lot of people don’t realise they are a private foster carer
If you are looking after someone else’s child for more than 28 days, you may be involved in a private fostering arrangement.
Multi-Agency Safeguarding Partnership
As a result of the Children and Social Work Act of 2017 and the Working Together Guidance of 2018, local authorities moved away from Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards, and adopted a different multi-agency safeguarding arrangement.
The arrangement is designed to ensure that all agencies collaborate across shared priorities, aligning processes, and workforce development.
Our plan places the well-being and safety of our children and young people at the very heart of our arrangements and all our future work will be dictated by what will best meet their needs.
About the Havering Safeguarding Children Partnership
Our focus is safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in Havering.
Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and the key local safeguarding partners – Havering Council, the Police and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) – are jointly responsible for ensuring that all relevant local agencies and organisations work together to achieve this objective.
The work done through the Havering Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSCP) and its members strives to make a positive impact on the lives of children and young people.
