Welcome to The Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children Partnership

Our website brings together information for children, young people & their families, as well as the professionals who work with them.

Changes to the Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children Partnership

Why are we changing things?

Revisions to the Statutory Guidance, Working Together enabled us to change our LSCB. In addition the most recent Ofsted inspection of the Local Authority meant that we could not continue to run our LSCB in the same way. The changes agreed for Buckinghamshire will mean that we can focus on –

Shared priorities with other strategic partnerships, such as reducing the impact of domestic abuse, exploitation and neglect.

 A family based, integrated approach to business.

Evidencing the outcomes and impact of the new partnership arrangement, including strengthening and reviewing its scrutiny and assurance processes

What are we doing?

Please see below paper that sets out the new local safeguarding arrangements for Buckinghamshire: –
