Lay Member Subcommittee

Terms of Reference

The Lay Member Subcommittee will provide peer support for the LSCB Lay Members, and help them further allow LSCB arrangements to be opened up to increased public scrutiny.

The Subcommittee will challenge the LSCB’s progress against the Business Plan and Learning and Improvement Framework to ensure the LSCB is:

  • assessing the effectiveness of the help being provided to children and families, including early help;
  • assessing whether LSCB partners are fulfilling their statutory obligations;
  • quality assuring practice, including through joint audits of case files involving practitioners and identifying lessons to be learned; and
  • monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of training, including multi-agency training, to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
