BSAB Winter Newsletter

Published: 18th Dec 2020

Welcome to our winter edition of our newsletter.

I hope this newsletter finds you safe and well.

During these winter months, the Board continues to focus on ensuring that safeguarding plays a key role in everyones work to protect and support people with care and support needs in the city. Safeguarding is everyones responsibility, and our ambition is that it becomes second nature for all of you wherever you work.

I am made constantly aware of the incredible lengths you are going to, in these most difficult of times, to support vulnerable individuals and communities.

We as a Board are trying to share all of the best practice as we hear it and would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all for your commitment and dedication.

Our December Board heard many encouraging messages about the impact this period of living with Coronavirus amongst us has had on partnership working. Old barriers have been lowered, past blockages unblocked, and closed communication channels opened up to ensure that Birmingham utilises all of its great assets and delivers the best services it can across all sectors. Covid has taken away so much from so many but has also given some positives back to us that I truly hope we maintain.

I encourage you to read and share the valuable information and insights in this newsletter and put them to good use.

So, as we head into the Christmas Period and New Year, thank you again for your continued commitment to safeguarding, we could not do it without you. Please take care and I wish you all a Happy Christmas and a Healthy 2021.

With very best wishes

Cherry Dale
