Working Together 2015 sets out the approach to learning and improvement for Local Safeguarding Children Boards and places a duty on them to develop their own local frameworks.
“Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs) should maintain a learning and improvement framework which is shared across local organisations who work with children and families. This framework should enable organisations to be clear about their responsibilities, to learn from experience and improve services as a result”. (Working Together 2015 pg 72)
Local Safeguarding Boards are expected to share good practice so that there is a growing understanding of what works well. When things go wrong there needs to be a rigorous analysis of what happened and why, so that lessons can be learnt and services improved.
The improvement framework, which is attached below sets out how we do this.
