Safeguarding Children Annual Report

Please click here for Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group's Safeguarding Children Annual Report 2018-2019.

Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) holds a statutory responsibility under:

  • The Children Act 2004
  • Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018
  • Safeguarding Vulnerable People in the NHS
  • Accountability and Assurance Framework 2018
  • Children and Social care Act 2017

to ensure that both the CCG and services it commissions are effective in ensuring safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in Shropshire working in collaboration with the Local Authority and Police.

The purpose of the report is to provide assurance by the CCG’s Safeguarding Team that the SCCG has discharged statutory responsibility to safeguard the welfare of children, building on previously produced Safeguarding Annual Reports.

The report is public to reassure and ensure both the public and the CCG are cited of the progress and developments around the national and local safeguarding children agenda during the year 2018-2019.
