EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

EXECUTIVE BOARD

18TH NOVEMBER 2019

 

SAFEGUARDING ANNUAL REPORT

 

This Annual Report outlines the progress we have made against the outcomes set by CYSUR and CWMPAS in March 2018 as part of our joint Annual Strategic Plan.

 

The Boards have progressed to a combined all-age Safeguarding People agenda in line with the spirit and ethos of the Social Services and Wellbeing Act (Wales) 2014. Joint and integrated working between the CYSUR and CWMPAS Boards at a regional Executive and Sub Group level is now fully embedded into the Boards’ structures and is part of everyday business.

 

2018-19 has seen the completion of a number of significant Board projects, namely the Regional Threshold Document for Safeguarding Adults, the Training Strategy, and the VAWDASV Regional Strategy and 5 year Delivery Plan, all of which have required significant input from dedicated multi-agency safeguarding professionals across the Mid and West Wales region. These bespoke projects have laid the foundations for the delivery of safeguarding services and professional practice in the coming three to five years.
