Bexley S.H.I.E.L.D. Executive has met weekly throughout July 2020. Focused discussions in this period have included domestic abuse and parent engagement.
The Learning Hub identified a group of 75 young people the partnership was collectively worried about and Hub members were tasked in June with carrying out well-being checks on those young people. The focus of Priority 4 is to identify and better understand the young people we are most worried about in Bexley as a multi-agency safeguarding partnership.
John Seal, Team Leader for the Bexley Kickstart Motor Project has been sharing examples of what the young people on this project have been doing during COVID-19 including art work, baking and photography.
The partnership’s fifth priority – Getting basic child protection right – was launched in June 2020. Basic child protection is one of the partnership’s priorities each year.
As part of some follow up activity for Priority 2 on parental mental health, we are launching Stories from the heart and mind: A collection of stories and key messages from parents with mental health difficulties.
