One thought on “Lambeth Safeguarding Children Board – training day

  1. Hallo Catriona,

    A couple of years back I was part of the London Councils project looking at safeguarding issues in different faith and cultural groups. I spoke about it at a LBFN meeting at the time. I hope that this training day is drawing on the resources created for London Safeguarding Boards, and given the proactive work underway in Lambeth it most probably is.

    Would it be worth revisiting this subject at some stage?

    Steve was part of a similar project, and perhaps someone from London Councils (Kay Bell?) could be invited to provide an update on the roll out of the guidance developed to address these issues.

    Best wishes

    Karen
