Safeguarding and Child Protection

The Norfolk Safeguarding Children Board
has a statutory duty to co-ordinate how agencies work together to safeguard and promote the well-being of children, and to ensure the effectiveness of safeguarding arrangements.  The Board believes that safeguarding children is everyone's responsibility. It wants to make sure that all children and young people in Norfolk feel safe and cared for.
