What is Safeguarding?
Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.
Safeguarding means: protecting children from abuse and maltreatment preventing harm to children’s health or development ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.
Child protection is part of the safeguarding process. It focuses on protecting individual children identified as suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. This includes child protection procedures which detail how to respond to concerns about a child.

Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB)
The Local Safeguarding Children Board is made up of partners and stakeholders from a range of agencies. They are committed to the work of ensuring that all partner organisations are aware of the safeguarding arrangements that apply to all children up to the age of 18 years including unborn babies.
The board also engages with members of the local community, to increase their understanding of the work that is being carried out to help keep children safe, and what's expected of everybody when there's a concern about a child's safety in Suffolk.
