3.5 Organisational learning

It is essential that all aspects of safeguarding practice is monitored and scrutinised on a regular basis. All staff have a responsibility to audit their work and a set of local outcome focused standards might support staff.

All agencies need to take responsibility for organisational learning and implement changes to their practice as a result of audits, complaints, SARs, and most importantly feedback from adults at risk about what works well and what needs to improve. Learning from themes and patterns of practice can add value and pinpoint necessary changes.
