WSAB is always looking at improving ways that it can share information with and get feedback from people in Worcestershire. One of the ways it looks to do this is through its Virtual Network.
The Virtual Network enables WSAB to consult with professionals and members of our local communities including people with experience of safeguarding and carers. The feedback received can then be evaluated and used to directly influence policies and guidance produced by WSAB. This can include things like the WSAB strategy, its annual business objectives and policies and guidance that directly influence service providers in Worcestershire such as;
- Worcestershire County Council
- Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust
- Worcestershire’s Clinical Commissioning Groups
- Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust
- West Mercia Police
One of the best things about the Virtual Network is that it is not labour intensive.
We recognise that Worcestershire’s communities hold a wealth of knowledge and insight that we would really like to utilise but also know that not everybody has the time or resources to attend meetings. As all communication takes place virtually, via email and the internet, WSAB is able to benefit from people’s knowledge, skills and experience in a way that does not inconvenience those providing their insight.
