The decision is that:

The ten Local Safeguarding Boards for Children and the ten local Safeguarding Boards for Adults will receive a payment as set out in the schedule below. Total value £342,724.

The work of the Safeguarding Boards will support GMP through the Strategic Vulnerability Board and at a local level in the areas of:

• Support the delivery of the GMP Child Centred Policing Strategy
• Shared Data Insights - MFH data for children and young people /care homes. We currently don’t have the specific details for children and young people's homes between 16 and 18 and would value more data from partners.
• Shared Training through safeguarding boards with local practitioners. This will upskill police officers and neighbourhood teams at a place level.
• SCR reviews - learning and continual improvement.

In view of this the Deputy Mayor has agreed to make a 12-month payment to Safeguarding Boards for the period April 2024 – March 2025.
