The WSCP consists of an Executive and four subcommittees/groups. View our organisation structure, including details of subcommittees/groups and their terms of reference.
For local arrangements to be effective, there needs to be engagement with organisations and agencies who can work in a collaborative way to provide targeted support to children and families as appropriate. These are referred to as the relevant agencies.

The Partnership Executive oversees the Partnership's arrangements. The Executive members are also responsible for ensuring information cascades from the Partnership through their own organisations.

The Monitoring, Quality and Performance Subcommittee (MQP) is key to the challenge and accountability of the Partnership. It provides an effective monitoring, quality and performance function with sharply defined accountability to the Executive. The MQP is chaired by the designated doctor for Child Safeguarding in Wandsworth and feeds directly into the Executive meeting.
The following subcommittees/groups report to the Monitoring, Quality and Performance Subcommittee:
1. Training and Workforce Development Subcommittee
This develops effective training, workforce development materials and events which ensure that both core and specialist knowledge and skills development is supported across the Partnership and that learning is effectively disseminated.
2. Safeguarding and Continuous Learning Subcommittee (SCL)
This provides the organisation and delivery of local child safeguarding practice reviews and action plans, and multi-agency audits, feeding them into the Monitoring, Quality and Performance Subcommittee. SCL also provides challenge to the Partnership on the implementation of action plans arising from Local Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews and other learning reviews. The learning identified by SCL inform Critical Learning Events.
3. MASH Operational Managers Group
The MASH Operational Managers Group will provide effective scrutiny of and challenge to partners practice, undertaking audits to identify good practice and areas where practice can improve.

5. Neglect Strategic Group
Many Local Safeguarding Practice reviews nationally and locally have identified neglect as a recurring theme. To reflect the significance and importance of this area Wandsworth has had a Neglect Strategic Group since June 2022 and is chaired by the named GP for Wandsworth. The group will oversee aspects of neglect including the embedding of the Graded Care Profile 2 [GCP2] neglect tool.
