Safeguarding is Everybody’s Responsibility
Working Together to Keep Children Safe
Every Child Deserves a Life Free from Fear and Harm
Arrangements for how to safeguard children in England have changed. Brighton & Hove Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCB) has been replaced by the Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP). These arrangements came into effect in June 2019.
BHSCP continues to be independently chaired and three ‘key safeguarding partners’ – the Local Authority, Sussex Clinical Commissioning Groups, and Sussex Police now collectively hold statutory responsibilities for safeguarding.
