Step 5: Review of arrangements
Circumstances can change and it is important that arrangements are regularly reviewed.
The Safeguarding Officer will arrange the review via video conference and include the Safeguarding Panel, the subject, and police and/or the social worker working with the subject.
A Confidentiality Agreement will be signed by all parties prior to the beginning of every meeting. This can be completed electronically if need be.
The Safeguarding Officer will take a minute of the meeting.
It is good practice to have the first part of the meeting closed before the subject joins the group.
The subject can ask for amendments to the covenant. It is a living document and it is important that they feel that they are stakeholders in the arrangements.
A review date will be agreed at the signing of the covenant but can be called at any time should the need arise.
A review should take place no more than 12 months after the signing of the covenant.
