Child protection information

Child protection conferences

A meeting between a family and professionals that is held when there is a concern about the safety of a child. The people working in this service are called child protection conference chairs. This service is managed by the Head of Conferencing and Review in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.

Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) 

In Achieving for Children there is a LADO service that provides advice, assistance and oversight if there are concerns about adults who either work or volunteer with children.

Child in care reviews

A child in care review is a meeting to talk about what has been happening for a child and what plans are being made for them while they are being cared for by someone other than their parents.

Parental Contribution Policy

This policy sets out Achieving for Children’s approach to seeking parental contributions for children who become looked after under Section 20 of the Children Act 1989.

RBWM Safeguarding Partnership

The partnership is made up of organisations working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of adults, children, young people and their families across the local area. 

Multi-agency threshold guidance

The multi-agency threshold guidance supports professionals and agencies who are worried about a child or young person to identify and assess the most appropriate action to take to ensure that families receive the right support at the right time, in the most effective way. 

Quality assurance

Achieving for Children is committed to providing the very best services to children and their families and by doing so, increasing the life chances of the children so that they can live healthier, happier and safer lives. All practitioners and managers are responsible for improving outcomes for children, young people and their families through effective assessment, care planning and review. We measure this in a number of ways through audits, workshops, performance data and getting feedback from children, young people and their families who use our services across Achieving for Children. This service is managed by the Head of Practice Learning who works closely with the Quality Assurance and Improvement Manager.
