Norfolk Safeguarding Children BoardEvery local authority in the country has a Local Safeguarding Children Board in place. This is to make sure that children are protected from harm and that their welfare is promoted. It is an independent organisation, made up of statutory and voluntary partners. They make sure that people working with children carry out their safeguarding responsibilities as required by law. They can also provide information on Signs of Safety, a new approach Norfolk’s Children Services have implemented, which supports families who may need help bringing up their children.
