Welcome to Solihull Local Safeguarding Children Board

The Children Act 2004 places a duty on every local authority to establish a Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB). The core objectives of the LSCB are to:

  1. Coordinate 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 authority;
  2. Ensure the effectiveness of what is done by each such person or body for that purpose;
  3. Communicating to the professional and wider community on the importance of safeguarding children

Statutory guidance,Working Together 2015, sets out how agencies should work together to keep children and young people safe.
