Croydon Safeguarding Children Board (CSCB) is the statutory body that brings together local agencies that work to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people up to the age of 18 in the borough.

The CSCB is made up of statutory and voluntary partners and includes representatives from Health, Children’s Services, Police, Probation, as well as Lay Members. Our main role is to coordinate what is done locally to protect and promote the welfare of children and young people in Croydon and to monitor the effectiveness of those arrangements to ensure better outcomes for children and young people.

We promote that safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility.  Our purpose is to make sure that all children and young people in our area are protected from abuse and neglect. Children can only be safeguarded from harm if agencies work well together, follow procedures and guidance based on best practice and are well informed and trained. In addition we want to make sure parents, children and young people and professionals have easy access to information about a broad range of child safety issues.

The CSCB has developed a mission statement:

“Croydon Safeguarding Children Board aims to safeguarfive-childrend children by promoting safe practice by all involved and early intervention, as far as is possible, with children/ young people and their parents and carers.

As a Board we will aim to act as a model for working in partnership by continually seeking the common ground between all concerned, predicated on the best safeguarding practice and making decisions on this shared information. This includes challenging actions or failure to act. It is our view that this represents the best way of keeping the focus on the welfare of children and young people of Croydon.”
