What is Wigan Safeguarding Children Board? [WSCB]
To enable agencies to work together and keep children and young people safe, Wigan Safeguarding Children Board was launched in April 2006. All organisations within Wigan who work with children and young people have a responsibility to safeguard them. A number of those organisations have a legal responsibility to safeguard children and are members of the Board.
Wigan Safeguarding Children Board will ensure that its agencies work together to “co-ordinate the assessment, planning, interventions and review of children and young people with a set of complex needs and compromised parenting or caring, in order to ensure they are safe and their welfare is promoted”. The aim of Wigan Safeguarding Children Board is to ensure that all children and young people are kept safe in our community.
