BSCB Annual Report 2015-2016

It’s been a while since we have published any updates but that does not mean we have been quiet.  In the last few months the Board, in partnership with Community Safety has successfully rolled out ‘Bolton Encompass’.  The Encompass approach ensures police share information about any Domestic Abuse incidents where children are present with the child’s school; it also outlines what schools can do to respond.  We are also working on refreshing the Framework for Action and you should look out for this in the New Year.  Hopefully as you make your way through the annual report you will get a flavour of some of the other work that we have undertaken in the last year and will continue to drive forward.

This year the Board has adopted a new approach to presenting the annual report and we hope that you will find this useful in your practice – as ever we welcome your feedback.  Read the report in full here.
