East Sussex LSCB – Annual Report 2014-15

It is a statutory requirement that LSCB’s publish an annual report on the effectiveness of child safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children in the local area. The report should provide a rigorous and transparent assessment of the performance and effectiveness of local services.

2014-15 has been another very busy year for the East Sussex Local Safeguarding Children Board. The Board has published two Serious Case Review Overview Reports, and worked to ensure that the lessons from these reviews have been integrated into practice, as well as starting on a new Serious Case Review during the last year.

Our report details how well we are doing in ensuring local services are keeping children safe, in particular through: holding organisations to account at regular Board meetings; providing vital training to professionals through the LSCB training programme; and driving improved practices by conducting targeted reviews and audits of cases.

The Annual Report also details our new priorities for 2015-2018 which are:

  • Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation
  • Improving Safeguarding in Education
  • Online safety
  • Mental health service provision to those who need it
  • Tackling the impact of domestic abuse on children
