MSCB priority setting survey
The Manchester Safeguarding Children Board (MSCB) and the Manchester Safeguarding Adults Board (MSAB) are statutory bodies made up of organisations that work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults, children, young people and their families. Together we make up the Manchester Safeguarding Boards and our role is to coordinate and ensure effective safeguarding across the city of Manchester.
The vision of Manchester Safeguarding Children Board is:
‘Every child in Manchester is safe, happy, healthy and successful. To achieve this we will: be child-centred, listen to and respond to children and young people, focus on strengths and resilience and take early action.’
Each year we assess our priorities and take a look at whether there are new areas we need to concentrate on to achieve this goal.
In 2017/18 our priorities were:
- Communication and Engagement – Listening & learning; hearing the voice of children & adults. Making Safeguarding Personal.
- Complex Safeguarding – Ensure that the following areas are tackled effectively and that adults & children at risk are protected – Domestic Violence & Abuse, Female Genital Mutilation, Sexual Exploitation, Radicalisation, Missing From Home, Organised Crime, Trafficking & Modern Slavery, So-called Honour Based Violence.
- Transitions – Moving from child to adulthood in a safe and positive way.
- Neglect – Ensuring the basic needs of every child are met.
