Learning & Development Programme

The main role of Sutton Local Safeguarding Children Board is to ensure there are good and robust systems in place in the borough so that children are safeguarded, their welfare is promoted and agencies co-operate to achieve this. This all relies on a well informed and well trained workforce that understands the roles and responsibilities of all agencies working with children and their families, as well as those of their own.
