Reshaping your councils – Public Consultation - have your say before 25 October
Dorset’s councils are considering reducing the number of councils in the county from nine to two from 2019 in order to protect services and reduce costs as their funding continues to decline. It’s really important that local people of all ages make their views on the proposals known - councils play a central role in our everyday lives. We all use council services, which range from housing, planning, social care and protecting vulnerable people, through to emptying the bins, maintaining roads and running libraries. The public consultation is your chance to let them know your views on how these and many other services are delivered in the future.
The councils are working together to listen to what residents, businesses and others think about the proposals - they want to hear your views before any decisions are made. Councillors will make their decision in January 2017. The public consultation on the proposals for change runs until 25 October 2016. You can fill out the consultation questionnaire online now.
Find out more about the options, the background, read FAQs, or visit a roadshow across Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole about the consultation – check out all the information at http://www.reshapingyourcouncils.uk/
Please give this message and attached flyer to colleagues, parents and pupils where appropriate. Thank you.
It is best practice that every school audits its safeguarding arrangements annually and uses the completed form and action plan to report to the full governing body (or equivalent). The audit is endorsed by the DSCB which receives an annual report on schools’ performance. The 2016/17 audit will be available on the DSCB website in October; it is accessed with a password and username (which will be emailed to you when the audit goes live). Please e-mail Jane Hillier if you have not received these - email@example.com
