Multi-agency training

This package has been designed in response to past and recent tragedies (e.g. James Bulger 1993, Baby Peter 2008) which highlighted deficiencies in multi-agency cooperation and communication. We look at key issues such as the types of barriers which prevent inter-agency cooperation as well the best methods for communicating with key stakeholders and partners. It also looks at the information sharing requirements of varied organisations such as e.g. MARACs, Safe Guarding Children Boards or Domestic Violence Forums. As such, it will bring you up-to-date on all relevant procedures, legislation and guidance and help you and your agency to meet statutory requirements.
