Strategy Discussions

Refer to the South West Child Protection Procedures (SWCPP) chapter Child Protection Enquiries for full information on strategy discussions and the role of the strategy in the wider child protection process.

The local strategy discussions practice guidance was updated in June 2021. The guidance covers the purpose of strategy discussions, preparation for discussions and next steps.  It also sets out expectations for all those who attend to ensure optimal outcomes for children, young people and families.

Somerset Safeguarding Children Partnership have produced a new animation to complement the procedures and practice guidance.  Click on the image below or select this link to open the animation.
