Professionals Briefings

Our Professionals Briefings are designed to make frontline staff and managers aware of the recommendations from Learning Reviews and SCRs, and the learning from our audit and quality assurance activity, so that they can use this to help improve local practice to keep children safe

We would encourage you to discuss these in your staff or business planning meetings. We always welcome feedback – please do email any comments to  LSCB@Brighton-Hove.gov.uk
