Strategy meeting

  • I always ensure Strategy Meetings are convened where there are concerns that a Section 47 investigation may be needed 

  • My Manager or my Advanced Practitioner will chair the Strategy Meeting

  • I liaise with all professionals and ensure at least Health, Police and I attend the Strategy Meetings 

  • I usually try to ensure Strategy Meetings are face to face meetings but where this is impossible telephone Strategy Meetings will take place

  • Strategy Meetings are recorded by the Team Manager or Advanced Practitioner who chairs the meeting and circulated to professionals involved within 24 hours

  • I know how important it is to hold a Strategy Meeting prior to the stage of Section 47. The Strategy Meeting will agree the thresholds and multi-agency Section 47 assessment to be undertaken  

  • I will ensure that any immediate safeguarding action required is taken

  • I will make sure that timescales for actions are clear
