Joint inspection of child protection arrangements (JICPA)

The Joint inspection of child protection arrangements (JICPA) is a Welsh only inspection and is similar to the Joint targeted area inspections (JTAI) in England.

The JICPA inspection involves several other inspectorates:

  • Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW);
  • Health Inspectorate Wales;
  • Estyn; and
  • HMI Probation.

JICPA follows a theme for each inspection. For example, in December 2019 the services in Newport were inspected on how they keep children safe. The theme of this pilot inspection was child exploitation.
