Safeguarding children is everyone's business!
The Southend-On-Sea LSCB exists to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children in the Borough, and is committed to the development, co-ordination, monitoring and review of safeguarding practices and ensuring that effective child protection procedures within and between all agencies working with children and young people are in place.
The Children Act 2004 implemented five key objectives which apply to children and young people. These are: staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well-being.
The challenge which the LSCB and the wider community face, is to ensure that these objectives are worked towards.
