Milton Keynes Safeguarding Partnership arrangements

The MK Together Safeguarding Partnership brings together senior leaders from key agencies in Milton Keynes to agree ways to co-ordinate local safeguarding services, act as a strategic leadership group in supporting and engaging others and implement local and national learning, including from serious child safeguarding incidents.

As part of its work the MK Together Safeguarding Partnership develops and publishes policies, guidance, and resources to aid the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults.

As set out in Working Together 2018 and the Care Act 2014, the members of the MK Together Safeguarding Partnership work together to set out and deliver strategic priorities.  It is an operational decision-making body and is accountable to the Health and Care Partnership and the Community Safety Partnership.
