Do you know how Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB)s support with safeguarding children and promoting welfare in community groups ?
All organisations working with children and young people must ensure that they have safe practices and child protection procedures in place. Therefore, your local LSCB can support you in two ways:
- Firstly in providing advice and guidance in relation to your safeguarding policies and procedures
- Secondly in providing your organisation with the opportunity to attend training courses for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
LSCBs provide inter-agency training for colleagues working with children, young people, adults and families. Most LSCBs have their own websites which have downloadable brochures listing the training courses available in their area including information on how to apply for a place on the training.
LSCBs have their own local priorities and targets, so the benefits of linking with your LSCB would be to have more local knowledge of what is important to focus on in regards to specific areas of safeguarding.
