Independent Safeguarding Authority

Volume 503: debated on Thursday 7 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what communication there has been between the National Safeguarding Delivery Unit and the Independent Safeguarding Authority since July 2009. (307852)

The National Safeguarding Delivery Unit (NSDU) does not routinely communicate with the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA). The ISA has been asked to join the Partnership Network, a broad coalition of partners, including key voluntary sector and professional stakeholders, which has been established to work with the NSDU to pursue specific issues impacting on effective front-line safeguarding practice.

Sir Roger Singleton provides advice and challenge to the NSDU in his independent capacity as chief adviser on the safety of children.
