Annual Report 2017/18


Suffolk LSCB's priorities for 2018/19 are as follows:

The LSCB will continue our core business which is to:

  1. Continue to evaluate the effectiveness of safeguarding provision across the LSCB partnership through a range of performance reports and audits.

  2. Ensure that learning from case reviews and the Child Death Overview Panel is effectively shared, monitored and embedded in practice.

  3. Effective working across the key strategic boards, in particular the SAB, Corporate Parenting Board, HWBB and SSCGs.

  4. Ensure that partners are well placed to deliver their strategic safeguarding arrangements in line with the expected government guidance, changes to legislation and organisational change.

  5. Ensure that the views of young people and families influence safeguarding provision across Suffolk.


Our specific priorities are:

  1. Develop the multi-agency safeguarding arrangement in line with Working Together 2018 to be in place by July 2019.

  2. Lead the delivery of the Child Exploitation Action Plan across Suffolk. This will recognise the impact of the multi-agency response to the County Lines and Gangs and Groups in Suffolk.

  3. Monitor the effectiveness of the Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Strategy and its impact on domestic violence in Suffolk.

  4. Monitor the safeguarding risks of children not in appropriate full-time education.

  5. Monitor the impact of the delivery of the Emotional Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

  6. Develop a robust Neglect Strategy and monitor its implementation and impact.
