Welcome to Bracknell Forest
Local Safeguarding Children Board

Welcome to the new Safeguarding Board. Our revised multi-agency safeguarding arrangements have been developed by Safeguarding Partners in Bracknell Forest and build on strong partnership working that has previously supported separate approaches to safeguarding children and adults. Over the coming weeks more information will be circulated and an ‘all new’ website will provide a single portal for information in respect of the future Safeguarding Board’s activities.

What is safeguarding?

Everyone has a responsibility for safeguarding children. Every child can be hurt, put at risk of harm or abused, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity. Safeguarding legislation and government guidance says that safeguarding means:

  • protecting children from maltreatment
  • preventing impairment of children’s health or development
  • ensuring that children are growing up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care
