MUNRO, E.R. and LUSHEY, C., 2012. Local safeguarding children board chairs' perspectives on responding to recommendations outlined in the Munro Review of Child Protection: findings from a national survey. London: Childhood Wellbeing Research Centre, 28pp.
In February 2012 an online survey was distributed to all 148 local safeguarding children boards (LSCBs) in England to explore the following issues:
the potential implications of increasing local autonomy and reducing prescription by central government
interagency working relationships to support effective safeguarding practice
prevention and early help
strengthening accountabilities and creating a learning system
This working paper provides an overview of the findings from the survey and offers an insight into the activities that LSCBs, children’s services and partner agencies have been engaged in as they have sought to respond to the ambitions outlined in the Munro Review.
