Local Safeguarding Children Board

Welcome to the Local Safeguarding Children Board for the London Borough of Newham

Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and the purpose of these web pages is to encourage the widest possible participation in the work of the Local Safeguarding Children Board.

To co-ordinate what is done by each agency to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

To ensure the effectiveness of what is done by each agency and by agencies working together.

As part of this, the board will :

  • develop child protection procedures and policies
  • ensure child protection work is of a consistently high standard
  • arrange training for staff who work with children, parents and families
  • raise awareness generally about the need to protect children and how
  • members of the public can help.

Learning & Training Courses

Working Together to Safeguard Children (2010) expects that introductory safeguarding training should be done by single agencies in-house. We expect all participants at multi-agency training to be familiar with basic signs & symptoms and with their own internal procedures for reporting concerns.
