Safeguarding

Liverpool Safeguarding Children Board

Section 13 of the Children Act 2004 required each local authority to establish a Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB).

Safeguarding means protecting children from physical, emotional, sexual abuse and neglect. It also means helping children to grow up into confident, healthy and happy adults.

Liverpool Safeguarding Children Board is made up of a Strategic and Decision Making Group and a number of Sub Groups responsible for undertaking and overseeing work streams of the Board with membership representing the breadth of agencies working with children and young people. It has an Independent Chair providing independent leadership to support the Board’s strategic direction

For further information and details on what to do if you have a concern about a child, please visit the Liverpool Safeguarding Children Board's website.

 

Merseyside Safeguarding Adults Board

Following the introduction of the Care Act 2014, the combined Merseyside Safeguarding Adults Board was established in April 2017.

The Safeguarding Board has a statutory responsibility to monitor and evaluate what is done by partner agencies individually and collectively to safeguard and promote the welfare of everyone who lives in Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton and Wirral.

The Merseyside Safeguarding Adults Board is a partnership of statutory and non-statutory organisations. It has an Independent Chair providing independent leadership to support the Board’s strategic direction

For further information and details on what to do if you have a concern about an adult, please visit the Merseyside Safeguarding Adults Board's website.
