New Multi Agency Safeguarding Arrangements


On 27 June 2019 Cumbria published its plan for the new multi agency arrangements for safeguarding children. From 29 September 2019, The Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership (CSCP) will replace the current Cumbria Local Safeguarding Children Board. The plan can be viewed on our website

The CSCP will continue to undertake the functions of the LSCB including the delivery of multi-agency training, carrying out multi-agency audits, undertaking reviews and publishing learning. The current LSCB policies and procedures will be adopted by the CSCP.

The LSCB website will remain in place until September 2019 while we update and transition all relevant information across to a new CSCP website.

The process for if you have concerns about a child remain unchanged.

There will the opportunity over the coming months to discuss and engage with future developments and plans for the CSCP. Further correspondence will come out regarding this in due course.

Safeguarding Fortnight

save the date

We are planning a Cumbria Safeguarding Children Fortnight, taking place from 9th to 20th September 2019.

Why? Because safeguarding is everyone's business.

We will be holding a series of learning events, across the county, to highlight that safeguarding is not just being about child protection intervention, but also has a place in the wider community.

The fortnight will also be used to share information and engage with practitioners about the new partnership arrangement for safeguarding children. The Department for Education published a new Working Together in 2018 that set out new safeguarding arrangements for local authorities, their statutory partners and wider safeguarding agencies and bodies. Under the new legislation, the three safeguarding partners (local authorities, chief officers of police, and clinical commissioning groups) must make arrangements to work together with relevant agencies (as they consider appropriate) to safeguard and protect the welfare of children in the area. 

The Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership (CSCP) will replace the current Cumbria LSCB from 29 September 2019.

More information will be published in the coming weeks!
