Bradford Safeguarding Children Board

The Bradford Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB) continues to provide the procedural framework for all partnership work to keep children safe within Bradford and fulfils its statutory responsibility around quality assurance and training. The role of the Board:

Sets the procedural framework for all partnership work to keep children safe within Bradford
Fulfils its statutory responsibility for ensuring that staff receive multi-agency training to support them in their work
Ensures that agencies are held to account for their work and that there is a learning and improvement framework in place to ensure that serious case reviews and other challenge and learning processes are effective.
Conducts a multi-agency review of every child death in the District, carried out by the Child Death Overview Panel.
In addition, BSCB plays a role in supporting and planning innovative partnership responses to safeguarding children challenges, such as the establishment of the multi-agency CSE Hub.
If you have concern that a child is being harmed as a result of abuse or neglect, you must not keep these concerns to yourself.
