Members considered the Partnership's Terms of Reference and Rules of Procedure.

The documents included a number of proposed amendments.

- it was accepted that reference to the commissioning cycle needed to be removed from the ToR.

- doesn't capture areas of collaborative work and where that work would impact on outcomes.

- some of the details in the ToR would sit better with the Commissioning Group, such as identifying intentions and making sure things .

- voice of the child needed to be drawn out.

- evidence based real experiences that informs commissioning intentions, new and emerging barriers that people are facing, taking real life experience into commissioning.

- life all about evidence based approaches. make sure sopending in the right way but is something about each community needing a different set of needs, not everything needs to be evidence based have discussions here and feed int o Commissioning Group

- evidence is what people say as well different types of evidenc into the commissioning cycle.

- need to be clearer abou collobrative discussions and issues thinking about expanding the language about what sorts of things will come here and why more work.

- usp clear of the value of the Partnership and link to safeguarding board very clear accountable to the HWB to lead the ahgenda about activity around cyp.

Link with the joint commissioning group should be clear tried to do this clear whare ther are services to be discussed particular decisions about changing design commissioning and monitoring will be the Commissioning group. Links with the safeguarding board promotion of wellbeing some unavoidable the

- Partnership should look at big issues that are multi faceted that need partnership input need an debate in a less formal basis should be possible to have discussions a really good airing but nmay need to go elsewhere.

- Forward plan will differentiate from Commissiong and SLSCB

Members considered a draft Domestic Abuse Strategy.

The following issues were discussed:

- A Conduct Disorder Needs Analysis was being undertaken by CCG. It would look at need and what interventions could be made at an early stage. It was noted that there was evidence around 16 - 18 year olds who already had a history of ASB, conduct issues and poor communication skills being more likely to be perpetrators of abuse in their 20's.

- Maternity Services requested that Operation Encompass be rolled out to include them. This would need to be further discussed with colleagues in the hub. Emma Champley would raise this at a meeting, coming from the Tactical Group, to map out the steps associated with Operation Encompass. It was suggested that providing information to maternity services should be covered by the information sharing agreement that partners had signed up to.

- The importance of Routine Inquiry by professionals being repeated at each contact was highlighted. It was understood that some work around primary care's response to Domestic Abuse was being undertaken.

- The issue of resources for schools to implement the whole education approach was highlighted. It was noted that the Police had indicated its intentions to provide intervention resources in schools, around relationships, behaviours and domestic abuse. This would likely rely on funding from the whole system transformation bid, currently being considered by the Home Office. The work in Schools, described in the strategy, did not rely on the transformation bid funding but, that funding, would accelerate some of the work.

The Chair thanked colleagues who had been involved in the preparation of the draft strategy.

Members considered the Forward Plan.

It was explained that the revised Plan attempted to map out what was important to come to the Partnership, in line with its role. Some discussion of items would feed into other groups and others would be specific to the Partnership e.g. information sharing, ways of working, unblocking the system.

Suggested amendments to the Plan included:

May - Maternity Services (LMS) (Jo Heaney)

June - Peer Researcher Report (Jo Heaney).

November - healthy weight focus (PH and CCG), maternity services (LMS) (Jo Heaney)

To be scheduled? - Revised 'Your Welcome' criteria - ( Jane Smith)

Further discussion identified a showcase of case studies where the Partnership had worked together and added value, made something more joined up involving more partners. A video Annual Report could be produced.

There was a discussion on how Partners might bring experiences/ emerging issues to each meeting, in an unstructured way e.g. members update/ via discussion during the forward plan or in some other way. This would be considered further.
