What is the Kirklees Safeguarding Children Board (KSCB)

The Safeguarding Children Board is a statutory body that was established on 1 April 2006 in accordance with the requirements of the Children Act 2004.  The Board provides the framework for ensuring that effective services are provided with partner agencies, including Kirklees Council, health organisations, West Yorkshire Police, West Yorkshire Probation, and the voluntary/community sector, to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in Kirklees, including protection from harm. 

This includes:

Board members are senior representatives of the main agencies which have a responsibility to safeguard children.  

Constitution and Structure

The constitution was first drawn up in 2008.  It sets out the core objectives of the Board, the role and responsibilities of Board members, accountability, and terms of reference of the workstreams which support the Board.  The constitution document was reviewed and updated in November 2017 and sits alongside the board structure and information on all of the workstreams that contribute to the KSCB Business Plan.
