Hillingdon LSCB has a range of roles and statutory functions including developing local safeguarding policy and procedures and scrutinising local arrangements as defined by Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015.
A serious case review (SCR) takes place after a child dies or is seriously injured and abuse or neglect is thought to be involved. It looks at lessons that can help prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
There are currently two LSCB sub-committees (Performance and Quality Assurance and Joint Strategic Safeguarding & Trafficking) which meet quarterly. Membership of each sub-committee is multi-agency and each sub-committee has terms of reference which is reviewed annually.
The multi-agency training provided by Hillingdon LSCB offers a broad range of opportunities for practitioners to work together in a learning environment with a common aim of improving children's safety and wellbeing.
