Parents & Carers

Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility and the LSCB brings together all agencies and organisation who work with children and their family in Richmond to promote the welfare of children and young people. It co-ordinates safeguarding through each of the partnership’s subgroups, as well as a number of specific safeguarding subgroups, to carry out its functions.

Children Act 2004 Section 11and Education Act 2002 Section 175 (c.32) outlines agencies that provide services to children and their family, including services they commission, must make arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

Regardless of gender, age, disability, sexuality or race, every child is considered within the LSCB’s work and place great emphasis to ensure participation of children and young people, especially through hearing the child’s voice.
