The Department for Education published (4 July 2018) a new Working Together 2018 that set out new Safeguarding Arrangements for Local Authorities, their statutory partners and wider safeguarding agencies and bodies.

In addition they published Transitional Guidance to ensure LSCBs had the time and space to move to the new arrangements as set out in WT2018. The Guidance states “From 29 June 2018, local authority areas must begin their transition from LSCBs to safeguarding partner and child death review partner arrangements. The transition must be completed by 29 September 2019.”

Our new arrangements will be published shortly – watch this space!

We hope that this website is useful to anyone who wants information about the Board’s work and how to keep children and young people safe from harm. Read our latest news here.
