BSCB Annual Report 2018/19

This is my third Annual Report as Independent Chair of the Birmingham Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB). Given the move to the new multi-agency safeguarding arrangements (MASA) and the launch of the Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership (BSCP) on the 1st April 2019, it will be my final report under the former arrangements.

As in previous years I have already shared my Chair’s Accountability Report with the Chief Executive of the Council, with the Executive Board Members and indeed with the wider Safeguarding Leaders Assembly.

The report is also submitted to the Chief Executive and Leader of Birmingham City Council, West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chair of the Health and Wellbeing Board.


I hope you find this report useful, interesting and most of all, encouraging as to the progress being made.

Penny Thompson CBE
Independent Chair
Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership
