Ofsted, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Probation and Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons are committed to the introduction of a new joint inspection of multi-agency arrangements for the protection of children in England. These inspections will focus on the effectiveness of local authority and partners’ services for children who may be at risk of harm, including the effectiveness of early identification and early help.

The inspectorates intend to begin these new inspections by June 2013 and to publish the arrangements for the inspections by April 2013. In addition, these inspections may trigger inspection activity by Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI).

This consultation seeks your views on the proposals for these new inspections.

The closing date for the consultation is 2 October 2012.
