About Us

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.
