21/01/2022 - West Suffolk Safeguarding Policy Update 2022 ref: 749    Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

West Suffolk Council places safeguarding at the centre of the services provided within the community. One of the Council’s key priorities is to develop and support “Resilient families and communities that are healthy and active” and commits to “work with partners to build resilience in families and communities, so that problems can be prevented at the earliest opportunity”.
