Each Local Authority area is required by law to set up a Board which brings together all major organisations responsible for delivering services to children and young people. The purpose of the Board is to co-ordinate what is done by each agency to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people in the area, and to ensure that this work is
effective. We have a legal responsibility to monitor and scrutinise the work of all agencies and partners, and to challenge poor practice where it is identified.
In St Helens the Board is call the St Helens Safeguarding Children Board. (St Helens LSCB).
