The Stockport Safeguarding Children Board have released the Annual Report for 2016/17.
The report shows that in Stockport we have continued to build on the strong partnership foundation to meet the many challenges facing agencies in ensuring that we are not only keeping children and young people safe but also improving the outcomes for our most vulnerable children.
Outlining the ongoing developments in relation to Stockport Family and the impact that the innovative service models are having on our most vulnerable children i.e. Stockport Families First working with children and their families on the ‘edge of care’; and a new Complex Looked after Children service who support and accelerate care plans for our children in high costs placements where the outcomes for these children are known to be poor. We have set out the achievements made in 2016-17 and the areas where we need to continue to make improvements.
