Hull Safeguarding Children Board Constitution 2014
The HSCB has a range of roles and statutory functions. These are set out in statute (The Children Act 2004), supported by regulation (The Local Safeguarding Children Boards Regulations 2006) and statutory guidance (Working Together to Safeguard Children, 2013).
This Hull Safeguarding Children Board constitution draws upon this statutory framework and also upon research into good practice by LSCBs (Good Practice by Local Safeguarding Children Boards, Ofsted, 2011).
One of the core functions of Local Safeguarding Children Boards is to develop policies and procedures for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The HSCB online procedures manual is hosted by Tri.x and can be accessed through the link below
