The OSCB is running a workshop for practitioners on multi-agency chronologies (MAC); which can be an essential tool for safeguarding and protecting children from harm.
They have found that a common theme from previous and current serious case reviews is the need for safeguarding partners to have one, shared understanding of the child over time. Therefore, this short workshop talks practitioners through the Oxfordshire model and provides good examples of the difference it can make to keeping children safe.
The MAC seeks to give a clear account of all significant events in a child’s life, and the impact these events may have on a child’s wellbeing and development, drawing upon the knowledge and information held by all agencies involved with the child and family.
This workshop will provide clear practical guidance on the use of MACs in safeguarding and child protection. By the end of the session, participants should understand:
- All agency roles and responsibilities in relation to MAC
- The process for using MAC in child protection planning and review
- What to include in the chronology and how the MAC differs from an agency update / report
- How the information shared in chronologies assists in assessment and analysis of needs / risks and impact for a child and their family
