Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council – Corporate Safeguarding Follow-up
04 January 2023

In this review we looked at what progress the Council has made against the outstanding recommendations and proposals for improvement in our report ‘Follow-up Review of Corporate Arrangements for the Safeguarding of Children’ (October 2019). 

Overall, we found that the pandemic further delayed the Council’s response to our 2019 report. Although it has taken recent action to strengthen its corporate safeguarding arrangements, the Council has not yet fully addressed our previous recommendations.
