We are a partnership of services, working together to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children in Southampton. Every local area has to have a ‘Safeguarding Children Board’ like ours. We are known as the LSCB.
The partners that make up our LSCB are: Southampton City Council, Hampshire Constabulary and Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group. Our members also include local providers of health care, education, voluntary sector, National Probation Service and Hampshire Community Rehabilitation Company. We also have lay members who are volunteers from the community that sit on our board.
The Board has an independent chair who provides independent scrutiny for the partners. The current chair is called Keith Makin. A small team supports Keith and the Board. If you would like to contact Keith or the Board team please click contact us above.
The board has particular areas of focus which are monitored in sub groups. The current sub groups are:
- Missing, Exploited and Trafficked (MET) Strategic Group
- Learning and Development Group
- Monitoring and Evaluation Group
- Serious Case Review Group
