South East region update December 2016

Update from the South East region for the December meeting of the ADCS Council of Reference

The South East Regional Update

The main project for this autumn and winter is introducing a new Self Evaluation Framework with an element of Peer Challenge. A whole day event is planned for 23 January to start this project. This will be new to the South East, but based on the template kindly shared by colleagues in the East Midlands.

We are also putting our own Topical Peer Challenge Round 9 in the field, recent challenges have been held in Kent (Adolescent Support Teams and Edge-of-Care Work), Windsor and Maidenhead (Corporate Parenting), Medway (CIN) and Portsmouth (CSE).

The Data Benchmarking Group continues to flourish with data sets for social care, adoption, SEND and work now underway on early help.

Our Leadership Development programme continues to support both teams and individual staff. The Children’s Social Care Workforce project has recently activated a Memorandum of Cooperation around recruitment, retention and agency staff. It is now discussing plans for an “Improving Audit Quality”.
