We've developed this website to help children, young people, parents, carers, concerned adults and professionals to access advice and support to prevent abuse and protect our children.

The Safeguarding Children Board (SCB) together with all partner agencies oversee the work that takes place in our city to protect children and young people from abuse and neglect. It helps to co-ordinate the way in which support services are delivered to those who need them.

I hope you find the site a useful resource to understand the purpose of the SCB, its structure and membership, as well as providing information to safeguard children and young people in our community.
