Key policies and procedures
Oldham Domestic Abuse Policy and Strategy
The strategy and policy have been approved and accepted by the Domestic Abuse Partnership, Oldham Safeguarding Children’s Partnership and Oldham Safeguarding Adults Board. The strategy sets out Oldham's community and partnership approach to domestic abuse and identifies Oldham's boroughwide priorities. The policy aims to provide the framework of a consistent and effective response to tackling domestic abuse.
Preparing for Adulthood: Oldham’s Transitions Policy
This policy explains why Transitions work is so important as the experience of Transition has often been described as a ‘Cliff Edge’ with some young people reaching the age of 18 only to find themselves without the care and support they need as an adult due to different eligibility thresholds between children’s and adults’ services, which means that some young people are no longer eligible for statutory support when they turn 18. The policy sets out best practice for how local services should work together to support not only young people with care and support needs who are eligible for adult services under the Care Act, but also young people who are not eligible under the Care Act but who are at high risk of experiencing harm or abuse and likely to need support as an adult.
