The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Safeguarding Children Board
was set up under Section 13 of the Children Act 2004 and replaced
what was the Area Child Protection Committee.
It is the key statutory mechanism for agreeing
how relevant organisations will work together to promote, safeguard
and protect the welfare of children and young people.
The Board is a partnership made up of senior
representatives from several organisations and agencies which
include the Local Authority, the Council of the Isles of Scilly,
the Police, the Health Service, Youth Offending Service, local
Probation Service, the Children and Family Courts Advisory and
Support Service and others.
What it does:
It agrees how local services and professionals working with
children should co-operate to safeguard and promote the welfare of
children. Guidance on how agencies should work together is
set out in Chapter 3 of Working Together to Safeguard
Children 2010. All agencies have a duty to comply with
the South West Child Protection Procedures (http://www.swcpp.org.uk/ ).
