Barnet Safeguarding Children Partnership [BSCP]:
Consultation on Harmful Practices Strategy

In 2018 the Barnet Children Safeguarding Partnership made a commitment to better understand how Barnet residents were affected by harmful practices.

Harmful practices can include female genital mutilation, honour based violence, forced marriage, breast flattening and abuse linked to faith or belief.

We began work to understand how often harmful practices happen in Barnet, how well the abuse is reported, and how services are supporting adults and children at risk of this abuse, or who have experienced abuse.

We would like to hear your views on this issue by answering the questions below - the survey should take you no longer than ten minutes of  your time.

If you would like to be further involved in the work being done with communities via focus group consultation, please email BSCP@barnet.gov.uk

Thank you for taking part in our consultation.

The Equality Act 2010 identifies nine protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation, and requires the council to pay due regard to equalities in eliminating unlawful discrimination, advancing equality of opportunity and fostering good relations between people from different groups. We ask questions about the groups so that we can assess any impact of our services and practices on different groups. The information we collect helps the council to check that our policies and services are fair and accessible.  For the purposes of this questionnaire we are asking for 4 of the protected characteristics included in the Equality Act 2010

Collecting this information will help us understand the needs of our different communities and we encourage you to complete the following questions.

All your answers will be treated in confidence and will be stored securely in an anonymous format. All information will be stored in accordance with our responsibilities under the Data Protection Act 1998.
