Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership are seeking the views of professionals from across the partnership who work directly with children, young people and their families.
LSCB’s are being replaced by new multi-agency safeguarding arrangements – a requirement brought in by the Children and Social Work Act 2017, Working Together 2018 and The Child Safeguarding Practice Review and Relevant Agency (England) Regulations 2018.

From 29 September 2019, The Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership (CSCP) will replace the current Cumbria Local Safeguarding Children Board. The new arrangements are set out in the CSCP plan which is published on our website.

You can access more information on the new arrangements here

We are now seeking your views on the changes and asking what you think the priorities should be for the new Board in the next year. This is your opportunity to feed in, share your ideas and suggestions and make a contribution to shaping services for the future.
We kindly ask you to complete this questionnaire offering as much detail as you can.
