Keeping Children Safe Together
Welcome to Peterborough Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB)’s website. The PSCB is made up of statutory and voluntary partners, representatives from Health, Children’s Services, Police, Probation, the Community and Voluntary Sector as well as Lay Members. Our main role is to coordinate what is done locally to protect and promote the welfare of children and young people in the city and to monitor the effectiveness of those arrangements to ensure better outcomes for children and young people.
Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility and so our purpose is to make sure that all children and young people in our city are protected from abuse and neglect. Children can only be safeguarded from harm if agencies work well together, follow procedures and guidance based on best practice and are well informed and trained. In addition we want to make sure parents, children and young people and professionals have easy access to information about a broad range of child safety issues.
We hope that this website is useful to anyone who wants information about the Board’s work and how we are “Keeping Children Safe Together”.
Peterborough Safeguarding Children Board (PSCB) is a statutory body established under the Children Act 2004. It is independently chaired and consists of senior representatives of all the principal agencies and organisations working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people in the City.
The Annual Report of the Peterborough Safeguarding Children Board (PSCB) evaluates the effectiveness of safeguarding arrangements for children and young people in Peterborough and sets out how the Board’s work will be developed and strengthened.
