Lay Members

The role of Lay Members is to act as ambassadors for, and to build stronger ties between, the LSCB and local community by making the work of the LSCB more transparent.

Lay Members support the work of the Board by:

  • Encouraging people living in East Sussex to become involved in child safety issues
  • Helping people living in East Sussex to understand the work of the LSCB.
  • Ensuring that plans and procedures put in place by the LSCB are available to the public
  • Assisting the development of links between the LSCB and community groups in East Sussex

Reg Hooke, our LSCB Chair states “Lay Members of the safeguarding board are a rich and vital contributor to the Board in many ways. These include supporting better communication with children and young people on the things that matter to them, in keeping the board focussed on the child, and as a source of basic, common sense advice and guidance to the Chair and LSCB Members in their jobs”.

We would always welcome expressions of interest in becoming a LSCB Lay Member. If you are interested in the role please review the East Sussex LSCB Lay Member Job Description to see if you meet the essential criteria and contact us.
