Strategic Steering Group
Visible’s Strategic Steering Group (SSG) oversees – and provides directional guidance to – our pioneering partnership. The group meets every two months and supports effective joint working at a strategic level between different agencies.
The SSG is made up of senior staff from key stakeholder sectors and organisations, Leeds Involving People’s Involvement Coordinator, and representatives from the Leadership Reference Group. Decision-making lies with this group, which is chaired by the Commissioning Programme Leader at Leeds City Council, Sinéad Cregan.
Senior leaders within the group represent the following directorates and organisations:
Members have begun to take ownership of the child sexual abuse agenda and make changes in their organisations
LEADERSHIP REFERENCE GROUP
Leeds Involving People (LIP) represents the independent voice of people through the promotion of effective involvement. In 2016 Visible established the Leadership Reference Group, whose members have all experienced child sexual abuse and who want to inform and influence the improvement of services in Leeds. Since then, members have been involved in all aspects of the project, from the development of the MindWell Child Sexual Abuse web page to the creation of a citywide policy statement.
