Welcome to the Portsmouth Safeguarding Children Board

We want to make sure that children and young people feel safe and cared for in Portsmouth and hope that the following information is useful to those who want to know more about the work of the Portsmouth Safeguarding Children Board (PSCB).

Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs) have been established by the government to ensure that organisations work together effectively to safeguard children and promote their welfare. In Portsmouth this includes Children’s Services, Education, Police, Health, Probation, Faith Communities, Voluntary Sector, Youth  Offending Team, Connexions and Early Years, to name a few.
