Safeguarding

Safeguarding

Every Local Authority in the country has a Local Safeguarding Children Board in place to make sure that children are protected from harm and that their welfare is promoted. In Norfolk, the Norfolk Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB) is made up of statutory and voluntary partners who work with families and children. We are an independent organisation and make sure that people working with children carry out their safeguarding responsibilities as required by the law.

There is a wide range of professionals who have a duty to keep children safe from harm, protect their welfare and support them to achieve their potential. Momentum's Chief Executive is a member of the Norfolk Safeguarding Children Board.  Safeguarding is everybody's responsibility, so it is important that professionals have the knowledge and experience to fulfil their duties. The Board provides advice and guidance to frontline staff on multi-agency safeguarding procedures.

Safer provides advice, information and training on all aspects around safeguarding children and child protection policies and procedures (primarily to the voluntary and community sector, but also to the statutory and private sector).
