The Wandsworth Safeguarding Children Partnership has decided to implement new arrangements to discharge their statutory functions and how that will be scrutinised.
Therefore, with immediate effect I am no longer chairing or scrutinising the partnership.
I will be having some input into the new arrangements as they are developed.
Chairing will be undertaken by the statutory partners with Ana Popovici chairing the Executive Board initially.
Whist the new arrangements are finalised I would suggest contacting the business team if you have any questions.
I have been working with this partnership for three years, taking forward the new Working Together arrangements. The restrictions imposed during the pandemic radically changed all our working practice, so it has been interesting and difficult in equal measure.
I wish you all well for the future and thank you all for everything you do to improve the lives of children and their families.
My very best wishes
