About the Board

About the Warrington Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB)

The law requires each local area to set up a board which brings together all major organisations responsible for delivering services to children and young people. They must co-ordinate what is done by each agency to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people in the area and ensure the effectiveness of that work. The board in Warrington is called the Warrington Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB).

The WSCB does not commission or deliver direct frontline services. Our job is to make sure that the services which partners deliver or commission all work well together and that they are effective in keeping children and young people safe. We have a statutory responsibility to scrutinise the work of partners and to challenge poor practice.
