The KBSP Local Arrangements 2019/20 is a document that explains what the Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership has agreed to do and the goals we have set to help make people in Bristol safer.
The Children and Social Care Act 2017 and Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018 explain how the government and the law want all people supporting children to talk to each other and work together to keep them safe. Part of the law says that people working with children to keep them safe have to be checked and supported to make changes to their work to make it better. The Keeping Children Safe Business Delivery Group finds out what and how those changes need to be made.
The Care Act 2014 is the law around looking after adults who need some extra help and support. The Care Act says that people working with adults need to also have some thoughts about how they can make their support for adults better. The people who make plans and find out what those changes need to be are the Keeping Adults Safe Business Delivery Group.
The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 explains the law around community safety and mainly the law for the police. Checking their work and if things can be improved is the Keeping Communities Safe Business Delivery Group.
Once a year the Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership send out a report telling the people working with children, adults and communities the way should keep the Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership up-to-date and let them know what has been happening. The first report will come out in September 2020.
It was agreed that the Bristol Safeguarding Children’s Board and the Bristol Safeguarding Adults Board will need to send out their own reports for the time between April 2018- September 2019, because that was before they joined together to become the Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership.
