To keep children and young people safe, many different agencies need to work together. The Children Act 2004 required each council to set up a Safeguarding Children Board. The board must make sure all of the work being done to keep children safe is co-ordinated and that it is making a difference. The board is made up of representatives from Children’s (social care) services, health and hospitals, education, police, probation, youth justice service, positive activities, domestic violence forum and many others.
