About Us

The Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP) brings together the key agencies in the city to help keep children, young people and their families safe.

In response to Working Together to Safeguard Children (2018), our partners – Brighton & Hove City Council, Brighton & Hove Clinical Commissioning Group, and Sussex Police – published local Safeguarding Arrangements for Children and Young People in Brighton and Hove, which details how the partnership will:

  • Work together to identify and respond to the needs of children in the area
  • Commission and publish local child safeguarding practice reviews
  • Ensure that the effectiveness of the arrangements are independently scrutinised
