Organisation structure

How the Wandsworth Safeguarding Children Partnership is constructed.


Partnership Executive

The Partnership Executive oversees the Partnership's arrangements. The Executive members are also responsible for ensuring information cascades from the Partnership through their own organisations.

Monitoring, Quality and Performance Group

The Monitoring, Quality and Performance Group (MQP) is key to the challenge and accountability of the Partnership. It provides an effective monitoring, quality and performance function with sharply defined accountability to the Executive. The MQP is led by the Independent Chair and Scrutineer and feeds directly into each Executive meeting. 

Five sub-groups report to the Monitoring, Quality and Performance Group.


Training and Workforce sub-group

This develops effective training, workforce development materials and events which ensure that both core and specialist knowledge and skills development is supported across the Partnership and that learning is effectively disseminated.

Serious Case Improvement and Learning sub-group (SCIL)

This provides the organisation and delivery of local child safeguarding practice reviews and action plans, and multi-agency audits, feeding them into the Monitoring, Quality and Performance Group. SCIL also provides challenge to the Partnership on the implementation of action plans arising from Local Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews and other learning reviews. The learning identified by SCIL inform Critical Learning Events.

Front Door Group

This focuses on improving operational practice at the front door. A key task of the group is the continued improvement of the Front Door as well as holding the Partnership to account for its contribution to multi-agency work.

Vulnerable Adolescents Group

This provides oversight of the implementation of the Vulnerable Adolescents strategy. It ensures a clear, co-ordinated multi agency response to addressing the risk to the number of adolescents in Wandsworth at risk through sexual exploitation, sexually harmful behaviour, criminal exploitation, county lines, involvement in gangs, suicide and neglect.

Virtual Policy Task and Finish Group

This is an optional group, to be considered alongside the other sub-groups. It comes from feedback from some of the consultation that there could be merit in having some short-term groups to consider policies. The steer for the tasks will be agreed by either the Monitoring, Quality and Performance meeting or the Executive.
