Safeguarding is Everybody’s Responsibility

Working Together to Keep Children Safe

Every Child Deserves a Life Free from Fear and Harm

Welcome to Brighton & Hove Safeguarding 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 Brighton & Hove Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCB) has been replaced by the Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP).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 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.
