Our vision, values and priorities

Welcome to Coventry Safeguarding Children’s Partnership (CSCP). The CSCP replaces the Coventry Safeguarding Children’s Board. The change takes place as a result of the Children and Social Work Act 2017 which places a new duty on Local Authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups and the Police to make arrangements locally to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in their area.

The CSCP, made up of Coventry Local Authority, Coventry and Warwickshire Integrated Care Board (ICB) and West Midlands Police, have agreed on the following as the vision and values for the work of the partnership.

Our vision

To work in partnership to ensure that children and young people are protected from harm and neglect and that their welfare is promoted.

Our values

  • To put children, young people and families at the heart of everything we do.
  • To ensure that partners work together achieving better outcomes for children, young people and their families.
  • To recognise and share examples of good practice so that these can be replicated in other areas.
  • To be innovative and to try new approaches to ensure continuous improvement.
  • To be open and honest about barriers that may be preventing improvement so that can we can collectively agree on how these may be overcome.
  • To ensure that poor practice is challenged appropriately to ensure that it leads to improvement in the system.
  • To ensure that children, young people and their families receive the right service, at the right time in the right way.
