Kent Safeguarding Children Board works to protect and safeguard the children of Kent: http://www.kscb.org.uk
There is a wealth of information on the KSCB website for professionals, parents, carers and young people.
The Children Act 2004 required each local authority to establish a Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB).
The core objectives of a LSCB are:
- To co-ordinate what is done by each person or body represented on the Board for the purposes of safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in the area of the authority; and
- To ensure the effectiveness of what is done by each such person or body for that purpose.
