Safeguarding Children

Safeguarding means protecting a child’s right to live in safety, free from abuse and neglect. It is about working together to support children and young people to make decisions about the risks they face in their own lives, and protecting those who lack the capacity to make these decisions. We all share responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, whether as a parent or family member; a friend or neighbour; a teacher or carer; or as a paid or volunteer worker.

 

 

 

We are a multi-agency partnership established under the Children Act 2004 and subsequent legislation such as Working Together 2018.

We are not an operational body – our role is to monitor the quality and consistency of safeguarding practice and training across all our partner agencies, ensuring continuous improvement in practice and contributing to the broader planning, commissioning and delivery of services.

“The Bradford Partnership will work to ensure that children are safe and receive a quality service” 

  • The child is always at the centre.

  • There will be clear governance and accountability, clearly defined roles and responsibilities

  • There will be transparent, open and honest communication between all

  • We will foster continual improvement which includes learning from others

  • We will enable early support at the right time to build independence and self reliance

The Bradford Partnership consists of senior representatives of all the principle agencies and organisations whose staff come into contact with children and young people, their families and carers.

The Partnership has a number of subgroups which undertake specific tasks on its behalf.

Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI) provides the public with a general right of access to information held by public bodies, such as local government, the police, the NHS and state schools.

The Bradford Partnership – working together to safeguard children (TBP) is a statutory partnership in its own right set up under the Children Act 2004 and is not a public authority for the purposes of the FOI. It is therefore exempt from the duty to provide information under the FOI.

Section 3 of the FOI provides that:

(2) For the purposes of this Act, information is held by a public authority if—

(a) it is held by the authority, otherwise than on behalf of another person, or

(b) it is held by another person on behalf of the authority.

A FOI request may be made directly to partner agencies of the TBP.  Where a TBP partner which is deemed to be a public authority under the FOI holds information for its own purposes, then it does so otherwise than on behalf of another person and the information held will be subject to the FOI. However, partners in possession of TBP minutes, documents, reports etc. are holding this information on behalf of ‘another person’ (TBP) and it is therefore not liable to disclosure under a FOI request.

Details of how to access information from a public body can be found on the Information Commissioner’s website at https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/official-information/
