Online Procedures for Local Safeguarding Children's Boards
We recognise that at the core of LSCB procedures there needs to be authoritative advice on safeguarding children for all agencies. The reliability of our procedures is road tested countless times every day by our LSCB customers, we work in partnership to ensure that our procedures reflect statutory guidance, best practice and the lessons learned from case reviews, audits, and inspections.
We also recognise that procedures can become too long and complex to be practical. Therefore, we work with our customers to hone our procedures to provide sufficient guidance to safeguard children without unnecessary detail.
We are always mindful that the audience for LSCB procedures is wide-ranging and varied, in order to make "safeguarding everyone's business" it is important that the procedures are clear and accessible with technical terms and acronyms kept to a minimum.
It is important that safeguarding procedures are kept under review to ensure that they reflect current guidance and legislation; tri.x will always provide an online version of the latest edition of Working Together as an integral part of all LSCB and Children Services procedures. We also regularly review our best practice guides and incorporate lessons from national research and Serious Case Reviews.
We use our relationships with LSCB's across the country to promote and share good practice. This is particularly important as the range of issues including in safeguarding expands in response to newly identified risks and lessons from practice.
