A review of Jersey's Safeguarding Partnership Boards has been conducted for the Community and Constitutional Affairs Department, following the Board's first five years in operation.
More than 40 senior professionals from various organisations including the Police, Probation, Health, Ambulance, as well as those working in children and adult services were interviewed during January and February this year for the review. Independent Care Home managers, the Jersey Childcare Trust and Jersey Youth Service were also among those interviewed.
The review found that considerable work has been undertaken in the development of policies, processes and training programmes; all of which have helped drive safeguarding improvements across the system. For example, over 11,000 professionals and third sector representatives have attended safeguarding foundation training since 2013.
