Child Protection Procedures
The Hertfordshire Safeguarding Children Board (HSCB) agrees how the relevant organisations in Hertfordshire will cooperate to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and ensure effectiveness. The HSCB CP procedures set out the arrangements for all agencies to work together to safeguard children.
A key objective for the HSCB is to support parents and carers to provide a safe and stable family life for children and young people. It also supports organisations that provide services to reduce the likelihood of children and young people suffering accidental injury and death, bullying and discrimination, crime and anti-social behaviour.
