Practitioners

This section of the website provides information for people from any organisation or agency working or volunteering with children or families.

Everything we do at the IOWSCP is underpinned by two key principles:

  • Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility - for services to be effective each professional and organisation should play their full part
  • A child centred approach - for services to be effective they should be based on a clear understanding of the needs and views of the individual children whilst recognising the support parents and carers may require.

Our Vision

“Working together to ensure high quality outcomes for all children, young people and their families and to enable them to access sustainable support and services”

This Vision is shared with the Childrens Trust Board, the Health and Wellbeing Board and the Isle of Wight Council.
