Resolving Professional Disagreements
Last updated: 22/01/2021
Safeguarding children and adults can be complex and/or challenging. It can involve a number of different professionals who may all have different views and contributions to make. Sometimes situations arise when workers within one organisation may consider that the actions, inactions or decisions of another do not adequately safeguard a child or adult. Learning from local and national safeguarding case reviews has highlighted the need for a clear escalation policy that all practitioners feel confident to use.
Safeguarding partners in the Royal Borough have, therefore, agreed an escalation policy which we encourage you to use if you‘re unhappy about the safeguarding decision making in a case you’re involved in.
