Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and the Tees Local Safeguarding Children Boards bring together people who work with children and their families to ensure that the safety and welfare of children is at the heart of their work. We lead the work to safeguard children across our regions.
The aim of the Tees Local Safeguarding Children Boards is to make sure those who work with children and their families do it well and keep children safe. The Boards are attended by professionals from the local authority, health services, the police, the probation service, the Child and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS), schools, the voluntary sector and many others.
This website gives children and young people, their families and communities and professionals useful information about how organisations work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
