Welcome to the Sutton LSCB web site
Welcome to the Sutton Safeguarding Children Board website.
The role of the Safeguarding Children Board is to safeguard and promote the well-being of children and young people.
The information on this website has been produced with our partner agencies, all of whom have a shared responsibility for promoting and ensuring the well-being and safety of children in Sutton. The Board hopes that you find the information on the site helpful and informative and that it will help you to support the protection of children and young people in Sutton.
We hope that this website is useful and easily accessible to anyone who wants information about any aspect of the Board's work and how to keep children and young people safe from harm.
The key message is simple – if you’re concerned about a child, don’t keep it to yourself, tell somebody.
