Local Safeguarding Arrangements
As of September 2019, the Brighton & Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership (BHSCP) has replaced Brighton & Hove LSCB, in response to Working Together (2018).
The BHSCP draws on a positive environment of multi-agency working in Brighton & Hove. We are committed to partnership working headed by the Brighton & Hove Clinical Commissioning Group, Sussex Police, and the Local Authority (via the Families, Children and Learning directorate), and with all relevant agencies, local children and young people, and local communities.
Our aim is to promote the welfare of all children and to ensure that children and young people are effectively safeguarded by implementing Working Together (2018) effectively and imaginatively.
Please note: As we are in a period of transition you may notice the LSCB branding on some documentation. These documents remain relevant until they have been reviewed.
The Department for Education provided advice on information sharing for practitioners involved in the provision of safeguarding services to Children and Young People. This guidance reflects GDPR legislation (general data protection regulation) and supercedes previous guidance published in March 2015.
