We want to ensure that you are kept up to date with the latest news and developments from Staffordshire Safeguarding Children Board (SSCB). We produce a newsletter on a bi-monthly basis and these are available on our newsletter web page for you to download.
We think it is important to share news and information about what our partners are doing to contribute to keeping children safe in Staffordshire.

NSPCC National repository of published case reviews
A new page has been created in collaboration with the Association of Independent LSCB Chairs called the National repository of published serious case reviews. The aim is to hold all case reviews in a central location, so the learning contained within them is easier to access.
The NSPCC’s information service will continue to catalogue the published case reviews, including a summary and keywords. This allows reports to be retrieved by theme (eg. domestic abuse; parental mental health issues). The catalogue record will include either a link to the Local Safeguarding Children Board’s (LSCB) website, or a link to an electronic version stored within the library catalogue.
In addition, the NSPCC’s information service is developing a series of at-a-glance case review learning analyses focussed on recurring themes, such as parental substance misuse and domestic abuse. These analyses are intended as brief summaries of key learning written for practitioners presented in an easily digestible format.
- Since 2014 the SSCB has completed 3 serious case reviews, one of which is now published (Child B). The learning from these reviews has been pulled together in the form of a poster which aims to embed good practice and continuously improve front line practice. Please share this with all staff and include on internal training events.
- From the 30th May 2017 our new First Response IVR system goes live and calls will be re-directed corresponding to the options chosen by the caller and specifically to colleagues in the Corporate Contact Centre
- This programme showed true stories of victims of grooming and child sexual abuse (CSE) in Rochdale. On this page are resources to help you report CSE concerns about your own child or things you have seen.
