Welcome to Solihull LSCB

Welcome to Solihull Local Safeguarding Children Board

Safeguarding is everybody's business 

Exploitation does not take place in isolation

Don't assume someone else will report it, take responsibility

Don't blame, don't judge... listen, care and safeguard

Exploitation affects all communities

Boys are exploited too

It doesn't stop because you are 18, adults are still vulnerable

A good relationship with a professional is the best resource a child and family can have

Representatives from children and adults services came together for a joint exploitation conference. The aim of the day was to:

Learn the lessons from Rachel SAR

Explore Transitional safeguarding from adolescence to adulthood

Understand Contextual Safeguarding

Consider Social Model of Consent

Exploitation Conference

The day was opened by Solihull MBC Chief Executive Nick Page followed by a performance from Geese Theatre to connect the audience with the reality for young people of being exploited. The rest of the day included presentations from; Dr Jenny Lloyd University of Bedfordshire- Contextual Safeguarding and the Social Model of Consent , Super Intendant Richard Agar West Midlands Police- County Lines, Steve Baguley Community and Education Lead National Working Group (NWG) - Transitions and Kay Wallace Police and Justice Lead NWG- The disruption of perpetrators  

Professionals worked together in discussion and action planning in the afternoon and results of this work were summarised in a plenary given by Jane Geraghty the Chair of Solihull Safeguarding Adults Board and Councillor Rolf chair of the Community Safety Partnership thanked people for attending.
