Contacts at the local Safeguarding Children's Board

Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs) were established by the Children Act 2004. LSCBs are now the key system in every part of the country for organisations to come together to agree on how they will cooperate with one another to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. The purpose of this partnership is to hold each other to account and to ensure safeguarding children remains high on the agenda across their region. The LSCB for York is: City of York Safeguarding Childrens Board.
