Working Together: transitional guidance

Statutory guidance for Local Safeguarding Children Boards, local authorities, safeguarding partners, child death review partners, and the Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel

This is statutory guidance. Its purpose is to support Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs), the new safeguarding and child death review partners, and the new Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel in the transition from LSCBs and serious case reviews (SCRs) to a new system of multi-agency arrangements and local and national child safeguarding practice reviews. This guidance will help them to understand the requirements and to plan and manage their work in the transitional period. They should have regard to it when making their transitional arrangements.

It should be read alongside Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018.
