This section of the site is for professionals working with children and families and provides information concerning the structure and membership of the Local Safeguarding Children Board, minutes, procedures, library resources and more.
This guidance represents good practice in safeguarding disabled children and young people in Somerset and should be read in conjunction with â€˜Safeguarding Disabled Children: Practice Guidance,â€™ Department for Children, Schools and Families, (2009) and the South West Child Protection Procedures (www.swcpp.org.uk).
The Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) recognises that it is best practice for partner organisations to have a child protection supervision policy in place, either as part of a wider supervision and accountability policy for all staff, or as a specific document. This guide is to inform managers who have responsibility for developing, implementing and reviewing such a policy about what should be included. It is not a model child protection supervision policy.
