Single strategic partnership for safeguarding in Devon


Following the publication of the “Woods Review” of Local Safeguarding Boards, there has been a review of the existing strategic partnership arrangements in Devon, led by Jo Olsson (Chief Officer DCC Children’s Services) and Mark Gurrey (Independent Chair of the Devon Safeguarding Children’s Board). There is a broad consensus that, in the context of continuing constraints on public sector spend, we need to rationalise and focus our partnership resources.
