Welcome to the Bromley Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB) website

Our job is to ensure all the people who work and volunteer in Bromley work together to keep children and young people safe. We believe that everybody has a responsibility to keep children safe from harm.

This website has lots of useful information for children, parents, carers and professionals.

Local Safeguarding Children Boards were established in The Children Act 2004. Every local authority in England has a duty to establish a LSCB.

The BSCB includes representatives from schools, health commissioners and providers, Local Authority Children’s Services, Metropolitan Police, probation services, CAFCASS, the local voluntary sector as well as lay members. We coordinate what is done locally to protect and promote the welfare of children and young people in the borough and to monitor the effectiveness of those arrangements.

We believe that children can only be safeguarded from abuse or neglect if agencies work well together, follow procedures and guidance based on sound practice and are well informed and trained. In addition we want to make sure parents, carers, children and young people and the community have access to information about a wide range of child safety issues.

We hope that this website is useful to anyone who wants information about the Board’s work and how to keep children and young people safe from harm.
