Welcome to the Hertfordshire Safeguarding Children Board (HSCB) website. HSCB is a statutory board, which has been set up in accordance with the Children Act 1989 and Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015*, and all agencies and organisations that work with children and young people are required to cooperate to keep children safe from harm.

Working Together to Safeguard Children - the latest version of working together was published in March 2015

The HSCB agrees how local services and professionals should work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

At the heart of establishing the HSCB website was the desire to provide useful information and a user friendly tool which will aid children, young people, their families and professionals to ensure that safeguarding is everyone's business.

If you require further information about HSCB, or would like to give us your views or feedback on this website, please contact us.
