HSCP Annual Report 2019/2020

The Hampshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSCP) is delighted to publish its first Annual Report 2019/2020.

On 30 September 2019, the previous Hampshire Safeguarding Children Board (HSCB) transitioned into the Hampshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (HSCP). The HSCP is established in accordance with the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 statutory guidance.

The report covers the last six months of the previous HSCB arrangements and the first six months of the HSCP arrangements. It sets out what agencies have done to improve outcomes for children and their families and how effective programmes of work have been in practice.

The Annual Report includes:

  • Evidence of the impact of the work of the three safeguarding partners (Hampshire County Council, West Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), on behalf of Hampshire’s 5CCGs, Hampshire Constabulary) and relevant agencies.
  • A record of decisions and actions taken by the partners in the report’s period (or planned to be taken) to implement the recommendations of any local and national child safeguarding practice reviews, including any resulting improvements.
  • Ways in which the partners have sought and utilised feedback from children and families to inform their work and influence service provision.

The full report can be accessed via the Annual Publications category of the Resource Library.
