Welcome to the Community pages
The Community and Voluntary sector has a vital role to play in the work of the Local Safeguarding Children Board. Community and Voluntary agencies, as well as faith organisations, are often the first point of contact for local families, children and young people needing help and support. The voluntary sector, therefore, is extremely well-placed to make early assessments of need, make early interventions and undertake preventative work. Voluntary organisations are also able to play an advocacy role, enabling and supporting families and children to access and understand statutory services.
This section is about sharing information in order to help and assist community and voluntary sector in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
We hope you will find the information useful.
