Tri-borough partnership to protect children from knife crime and exploitation

A plan to keep children safe from knife crime and exploitation in Havering, Redbridge and Barking and Dagenham has been revealed. 

The three borough councils will form a new safeguarding partnership, alongside the NHS and Metropolitan Police, to share resources and expertise. 

“When it comes to safeguarding, the boundaries between the three boroughs are irrelevant,” said Havering councillor, Robert Benham. 

“It makes sense for the three boroughs to work closely in this way when we have knowledge and expertise that we can share to ensure that immediate steps are taken to protect and safeguard the young people and families at greatest risk.”

Directors from each local authority, the borough police commander and the clinical commissioning group’s chief nurse will all feature in the group. It will initially meet every six weeks.

Each borough will also have its own separate group to decide which issues are a priority in their area. 

In Havering, a safeguarding group will replace the existing safeguarding board and develop an annual work plan for the area. 

It will focus on protecting teenagers, the risk posed by county lines, modern slavery and criminal exploitation. 

Director of Children’s Services, Tim Aldridge, will chair the group which will work with local partners to deliver their goals. 

New arrangements are expected to be in place by September 2019.
