The Safe and Strong Communities Select Committee formed a working group to consider Low Level Neglect with the focus of their report being around early identification and prevention. The Working Group’s report was endorsed at the Select Committee meeting of 8 June 2016. The report was then submitted to the Cabinet Member for Children and Young People who verbally confirmed he accepted the vast majority of the recommendations at the Select Committee meeting of 8 July 2016, with a formal written response and progress report on implementation of the recommendations at their 6 March 2017 meeting.
The Select Committee now received details of the progress made and Members thanked the Cabinet Member for his work in addressing the Working Group’s recommendations.
The Select Committee requested an organogram showing the governance model for this area of work and identifying the relationship between the different groups involved.
RESOLVED – That:
a) the Executive Response and progress with any outstanding items on the Action Plan be noted;
b) the Cabinet Member for Children and Young People be thanked for the progress made in addressing the Working Groups recommendations; and
c) an organogram of the governance model and relationship between the groups involved in this work be forwarded to Select Committee Members.
