Slough Safeguarding Children

What we do

Slough Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) is a statutory body established under the Children Act 2004. We are responsible for ensuring that all agencies who work with children and young people in Slough work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in the local area.

We work in partnership to:

  • ensure partners have a co-ordinate and child-centred approach to safeguarding
  • raise awareness of safeguarding issues in the community
  • monitor the effectiveness of the work that is done by local agencies . See the LSCB Learning and improvement framework 2018

The LSCB is made up of representatives of young people provided by our 2 lay members.

Membership is made up of representatives from: Slough Local Authority, Slough Children's Trust, Primary, Secondary schools and colleges, Berkshire Health Care Foundation Trust, Frimley Health Care Foundation Trust, East Berkshire Clinical Commissioning group, Solutions 4 Health, The National Rehabilitation Service, The Community rehabilitation company and Thames Valley Police and HealthWatch

Slough LSCB does not deliver services directly to children, young people or their families.
