Harrow Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) is a statutory body which co-ordinates, monitors and challenges its partner agencies in safeguarding children in Harrow.
The Children Act 2004 (S13) required that children's services authorities establish a Local Safeguarding Children Board for their area. The statutory guidance document Working Together to Safeguard Children 2013 (HM Government) sets out how this should be done. Most agencies and organisations that provide services to adults and children must make arrangements to ensure that they safeguard and promote the welfare of children (Children Act 2004 Section 11 and Education Act 2002 Section 175 (c.32)). This also applies to any services commissioned by them. These responsibilities are set out in the Department for Education Section 11 arrangements and responsibilities document.
The LSCB Annual Report on the effectiveness of safeguarding in the local area sets out the Boards priorities and drives the development of services in safeguarding children and young people in Harrow.
All children and young people regardless of age, disability, gender, race or sexuality are considered within the work of the Board.
