Children and Young People - Doncaster Safeguarding Children Board

Your Local Safeguarding Children Board is known as Doncaster Safeguarding Children Board (DSCB).

The role of DSCB is to make sure that all those working with children in the Doncaster area work together to keep the children safe and promote their welfare. We co-ordinate the work that is done to make sure it is as effective and useful as possible.

Working Together to Safeguard Children guidance spells out the important role given to DSCB. You can find a young person's version below (based on the 2013 guidance). The work of DSCB includes bringing different local services together to look at whether:

  • Children and families are getting the help they need, including early help;

  • Local services are doing what the law and guidance say they should be doing to help keep children safe;

  • The quality of work is done is of the highest standard;

  • Lessons are learned for the future when children have been harmed in their area;

  • Local training is helping different professionals to keep children safe. (Young Person's Guide to Working Together to Safeguard Children, DFE, 2013)
