Practitioners report that training alongside other organisations is of the key factors in making multi-agency working a success. It means that opportunities are built in for staff from different backgrounds to get to know each other, co-operate, discuss, and make joint decisions.
 
This is not a standardising process, but one that helps each person appreciate the different contributions they can make to meet their common goals.

The West Sussex Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) recognises the importance of:
 
  • Giving practitioners an opportunity to learn together.
  • Developing awareness of the broader remit of the LSCB in safeguarding the children of West Sussex.
  • Ensuring knowledge is up to date and practice is effective around the protection of children of West Sussex
 
Inter-agency training within West Sussex helps us develop and foster a shared understanding of the local arrangements for safeguarding children and promoting their welfare. These include:
 
  • Tasks
  • Processes
  • Principles
  • Roles
  • Responsibilities.
 
It also helps us all to:
 
  • Co-ordinate our services - strategically and individually
  • Improve our communication - giving us a common understanding of key terms, definitions and thresholds for action
  • Work effectively together - while respecting and understanding the role and contribution of each different agency
  • Make sound decisions - based upon the information we share, thorough assessment, critical analysis and professional judgement.
