LSCB Job Shadowing Scheme is launched!

As part of taking forward learning and improvement in the area of safeguarding children and young people, the LSCB have launched a new Job Shadowing Scheme, available across partner agencies.  For more information, see the relevant page on the website.  From here you will be able to request a shadowing experience following approval from your Line Manager.  Do find out more about this initiative which will support understanding of the different roles and responsibilities of agencies and professionals working with children, young people and their families and also contribute to your CPD.

Are you a child or young person?

If something is worrying you or making you scared and you’re not sure if it is abuse, it is important to talk to someone you trust and we can help.

Children and young people may be hurt by an adult or another young person in many ways. Abuse can be any of the following:

  • Physical Abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Neglect


Are you a parent or carer?

We all have a personal responsibility to notice when a child or young person may be being abused and pass our concerns to someone who can act to protect them.

This part of the website is for parents, carers, anyone with parental responsibility, relatives, friends and neighbours who need information or advice.


Are you a professional working with children and families?

Redbridge Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) is a statutory partnership of professionals working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. The LSCB has a range of roles and responsibilities including developing local safeguarding policy and procedures, challenging and scrutinising local arrangements, and raising awareness of safeguarding issues in the community.


What training does Redbridge Local Safeguarding Children Board offer?

The Redbridge Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) Training Programme provides courses, briefings and workshops with a focus on multi-agency training which complements training already available within individual agencies. It not only covers child protection issues but deals with the broad area of safeguarding.
