The Safeguarding Board for Northern Ireland (SBNI) invites your views on our draft Strategic Plan 2018 -2022.

This consultation seeks your views on our new strategic plan which sets out the strategic direction and context of work of the SBNI over the next four years to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people in Northern Ireland.

We aim to gather the views and suggestions about this strategic plan from children and young people, their parents and carers, all organisational stakeholders with an interest in safeguarding and the protection of children and young people as well as the general public on our draft mission, vision, values, strategic priorities and aims.


The SBNI has published a draft strategic plan for 2018 – 2022 that sets out the direction for the SBNI over the next 4 years, taking into account the views of children and young people, their parents and carers, our member agencies and the partner organisations we work with, Department of Health priorities, and the wider public. 

The draft strategic plan proposes:

  • New mission, vision and values statements for the Board

This consultation is seeking the views of all stakeholders on the strategy.
