Description of activity
Kingston Local Safeguarding Children Board’s (LSCB) role is to ensure that relevant agencies and professionals work together to protect the borough’s children from abuse, harm and neglect.
The LSCB develops, monitors and reviews child protection and child safety policies, procedures and practice within Kingston. It also co-ordinates and provides inter-agency training for staff across the borough who work with children and families.
The LSCB’s job is to have an overview of how effectively children are safeguarded and identify improvements where necessary. For this reason, the LSCB is an independent body that can check on the work of all organisations working with children and families.
