1. The Independent Chairs Introduction

I am very pleased to commend this Business Plan as the shared framework for guiding and
measuring the work of Wigan’s Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB).

This plan has been very carefully considered, in order to reflect the priorities which all
members of WSCB recognise as essential to maintain its crucial role of co-ordinating and
ensuring the effectiveness of everyone’s efforts to keep children and young people in the
Wigan Borough safe.

There has been significant activity over the last 12 months to consolidate the work of the
WSCB, including a review of its structure, a multi agency audit of safeguarding
arrangements and the appointments of an Independent Chair and a Business Development
Manager. This has added extra strength and stamina to the Board which has set out its six
core objectives in this plan. The successful achievement of these priorities will provide the
firm foundation on which to build additional activities, reflecting the wider safeguarding

The six key objectives are:
1. Developing a safe workforce
2. Reinforcing safeguarding policies, procedures and joint working protocols
3. Measuring the effectiveness of WSCB
4. Identifying critical cases and embedding lessons learned
5. Ensuring provision of safeguarding training
6. Hearing the views of children and young people

The WSCB website (www.wiganlscb.com) will provide up to date and helpful information
which will complement this plan and provide a commentary on its implementation through
the current activities of the Board.

2. Who should read the WSCB Business Plan

This Business Plan will be the core tool by which WSCB will manage and account for its
work in co-ordinating what is done to safeguard children in Wigan and in ensuring the
effectiveness of this work. All Board Members, Executive Group members and Sub Group
members should have a detailed knowledge of the plan. Chief Executives of local agencies
with a duty to co-operate under S11 of the Children Act 2004 and agencies’ Strategic
Safeguarding Groups should also scrutinise the plan and ensure that single agency planning
takes into account, where applicable, the core objectives of this plan.

Operational Managers should familiarise themselves with the objectives of the plan to
ensure that their safeguarding teams and practitioners working directly with children, young
people and families are aware of the strategic arrangements in the plan, which aim to
scrutinise, support and where necessary challenge local arrangements to safeguard children
and promote their welfare.

This plan will be published on the WSCB website and will also therefore be available to
children and young people, their family and carers.
