A Local Safeguarding Children Board’s primary focus must be the safety, protection and promotion of the welfare of all children and young people. Safeguarding is about promoting the rights and welfare of all children and young people but also protecting the most vulnerable children and young people from harm. Each and every one of us has a duty to safeguard, protect and promote the welfare of children and young people. Safeguarding is everyone’s business.
The Calderdale Safeguarding Children Board (CSCB) consists of the Safeguarding Board, Business Group and various Sub Groups. The Board has an Independent Chair, Richard Burrows who provides leadership for the Board and ensures that it operates effectively. A team of staff support the work of the Board and its sub-groups.More about the Safeguarding BoardMore about the Sub Groups CSCB Key Documents
