About the Safeguarding Board

Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board ensuring that:

"Children and young people in Worcestershire receive the right services at the right time to feel safe and be protected from harm and neglect."

Our Priorities Are:

  • Reducing the impact of domestic abuse, parental mental ill health and substance misuse on children and their families
  • Ensuring that information is shared promptly and appropriately to strengthen effective safeguarding services

What does the safeguarding board do?

The WSCB has a wide range of responsibilities, including the development and review of procedures to protect children; the provision of training for staff and volunteers who work with children; reviewing the death of all children to find out what lessons can be learnt to safeguard other children and raising public awareness of safeguarding.

Inter-Agency working is at the heart of safeguarding and protecting children and the WSCB works to ensure that all the agencies communicate with one another in the interests of the child.
