This is the first in a series of podcasts looking at the Bradford Safeguarding Children Board which I have the privilage to Chair.
Initially, in five interviews with key members of the Board, you will get to experience a flavour of the work of the Board and the people who serve on it.
The first is with Michael Jameson. Michael is the Strategic Director of Children’s Services having responsibility for strategic leadership across education, employment and skills, social care, safeguarding children and youth offending. His stated aim is to work with partners to make Bradford a place where children and young people from all communities feel safe, enjoy living, and develop the skills and opportunities to fulfil their potential.
Bradford itself is a vibrant city in West Yorkshire of about half a million people with a very high number of children under 18.
It also has a rich cultural diversity with about 120 languages spoken.
Following podcasts will feature other Board members such as the Consultant in Public Health who also Chairs the Child Death Overview Panel, the Superintendent of Police responsible for safeguarding, the Chair of the Adult Safeguarding Board and the Headteacher who chairs our Education sub committee.
