Practitioner forum

Do you want to help shape safeguarding practice? 

The Salford Safeguarding Children Board (SSCB) set up a Practitioner Forum in January 2013 to help develop a workforce that is solution focused, involved and encouraged to develop new ideas. It is the hope of the Salford Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP) that the quality of safeguarding practice can be improved by having practitioners communicate, via the Practitioner Forum, with strategic members of the partnership. 

The Practitioner Forum is to help ensure your experiences and suggestions for improvement are fed back to the SSCP for action. 

Each Practitioner Forum focuses on a different theme based on SSCP priority areas, emerging issues and practitioner requirements.

Practitioners don't need to book in advance. You can just turn up on the day.

For further information please contact the SSCP Training Coordinator Sharn Begum.
