Annual reports

As the Independent Chair of the Wandsworth Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB) I am pleased to present the annual report for the period between April 2017 and March 2018 which sets out its accomplishments during the last year and the Board's intentions for further progress in the future. Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs) were established with the purpose of ensuring that agencies keep local children and young people safe and that where they have intervened they have made a positive difference in children's lives.

The WSCB has a really important role in coordinating and ensuring the effectiveness of what is done by each and every person involved in protecting children and it carries statutory responsibilities for safeguarding children in Wandsworth. It is made up of senior managers within organisations in Wandsworth who hold responsibility for safeguarding children in their agencies, such as children's social care, police, health, education and other services including voluntary bodies. The WSCB monitors how they all work together to provide services for children and ensure children are protected. This report reflects the work that the board has undertaken during the last year.
