The Suffolk LSCB has been established as required by legislation and statutory guidance and is required to act with independence and authority in respect of the work of all organisations whose staff come into contact with children and young people, their parents and carers.
The LSCB is made up of partners and stakeholders from a range of agencies that commit to the work of the LSCB and bring a range of knowledge, experience and expertise under the leadership of an Independent Chair Person.
The aim of the LSCB is to ensure that partner organisations are aware of safeguarding arrangements. It is also important that members of the local community have increased understanding of the work that is being carried out to help keep children safe in Suffolk.
Suffolk LSCB recognises that safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people involves:
- Protecting from maltreatment
- Preventing impairment of health and development
- Ensuring that children grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
- Enabling children to have optimum life chances and enter adulthood successfully
The Annual Report of the Suffolk LSCB outlines the development of the Board in both range and depth of activity and illustrates how the Board is determined to evolve and strengthen to meet the challenges laid down by Professor Munro and Government recommendations.
The LSCB has a number of sub-groups which meet to focus on key areas of safeguarding.
