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 Brighton & Hove Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCB) has been replaced by the Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP) – These arrangements came into effect in September 2019.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, Sussex Clinical Commissioning Groups, and Sussex Police now collectively hold statutory responsibilities for safeguarding.

BHSCP are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join the Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership as lay members.  Check out our recent post to find out more!
