Welcome

Welcome to the Shropshire Safeguarding Children Board website - designed to provide useful information and advice for professionals, parents and children.

We coordinate and monitor how the services and professional staff work together to protect children from abuse or neglect. It is very important that the right decisions are made to ensure that family life is supported whenever possible but that, where a child is at risk of significant harm, there is a coordinated and effective response to the situation. Agencies involved in protecting children can include the police, education, health, probation, the voluntary sector and other organisations who work with children, as well as Children's Social Care who have the lead responsibility.
