At a recent meeting of the Children and Young People’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee, a member of that committee commented that she had received Signs of Safety awareness training which had been very useful.  The Scrutiny Committee agreed that this training should be provided for all members of the Children and Young People’s Scrutiny Committee and suggested that the training should also be offered to Corporate Parenting Panel members.  It was agreed that a joint awareness training session would be arranged for members of the Children and Young People’s Overview and Scrutiny Committee and the Corporate Parenting Panel.  Details will be shared in due course.


The Head of Children’s Social Care informed the Panel that moving forward, the remit of the Looked After Children and Permanence Strategic Manager post will be split into two posts. The current postholder will retain responsibility for social work and care planning for looked after children and care leavers.  A new Senior Manager Looked After Children Resources post has been created to focus on residential care and fostering  This post has been advertised and recruitment is underway to appoint to the new post.
