Working Together to Keep Children Safe

Every Child Deserves a Life Free from Fear and Harm


Welcome to Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership’s Website.

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 Brighton & Hove Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCB) has been replaced by the Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP) – These arrangements came into effect in September 2019. BHSCP continues to be independently chaired and three ‘key safeguarding partners’ – the Local Authority, NHS Sussex Integrated Care Board (ICB) , and Sussex Police now collectively hold statutory responsibilities for safeguarding.

For more information on our new safeguarding arrangements, click here.

Please note that we are in the process of updating this website to reflect the Working Together 2023 changes.
