New safeguarding children arrangements
On 29 June 2019 new safeguarding arrangements began in North East Lincolnshire. The Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) has been replaced by the North East Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Partnership (NELSCP). NELSCP arrangements comply with the Children Act 2004, as amended by the Children and Social Work Act 2017 and Working Together 2018 Government Guidance.
NELSCP has three partners sharing equal responsibility for safeguarding children and young people. These are Humberside Police, NHS North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group and North East Lincolnshire Council.
Procedures are currently being updated to reflect the new partnership arrangements. This transition will be completed by 29 September 2019. To find out more about the Partnership go to our North East Lincolnshire Safeguarding Children Partnership page.
