Published Arrangements

Following the Children and Social Work Act 2017, Bexley Safeguarding Children Board was replaced with Bexley S.H.I.E.L.D., a statutory safeguarding partnership of organisations working with children and young people.

A requirement of Working-together-to-safeguard-children is for all safeguarding partnerships to produce a document which sets out how the new arrangements work. Bexley’s first published arrangements document was issued in October 2018 with a refreshed version reissued in December 2019. The latest version (from January 2021) can be downloaded below:
