What is Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Board?

Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Board (SSCB) is the key statutory mechanism for agreeing how local organisations will co-operate to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people living in Staffordshire.

It is an inter-agency forum for agreeing how the different services and professional groups should co-operate to safeguard children throughout Staffordshire (except Stoke-on-Trent) and, for making sure that arrangements work effectively to promote better outcomes for children.

Stoke-on-Trent is a unitary authority and has its own Local Safeguarding Children Board. Visit Stoke Safeguarding Children Board.
