Welcome to Cheshire West and Chester Safeguarding Children Partnership website
Arrangements for safeguarding children in England have changed. The Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) has been replaced by the Safeguarding Children Partnership. These new arrangements came into effect on 24th June 2019.
The Safeguarding Children Partnership (SCP) continues to be independently chaired. Three ‘key safeguarding partners’ – the Local Authority (through Children and Families), Clinical Commissioning Groups (West Cheshire and Vale Royal CCGs) and Cheshire Police now collectively hold statutory responsibilities for safeguarding.
