Welcome to LSCB Northamptonshire (LSCBN)

Safeguarding is everyone's business.

Message From The Board:

Keith Makin appointed as chair to LSCBN on starting in his new role Keith said: "Northamptonshire is a county with a rich and varied diversity of populations in both rural and urban areas and this presents a number of differing challenges and opportunities. Because I chair two other LSCBs in very different places, a small unitary area and a London borough, I'm hoping that I can bring learning from these that can be transferred to Northamptonshire and vice versa. "Although Northamptonshire has been subject to a number of critical inspections, there is a real spirit of change with the partners very committed to the task so I am confident that the necessary improvements can be made. "My immediate priority will be to make sure that everyone is on board with the changes planned and that includes helping frontline staff to feel supported and engaging children and young people in the processes of change, making sure that their voices are heard and listened to. I also see the speed of change as a priority, we need to not only bring about changes but do so quickly enough to make a difference. "I'm encouraged by quite a number of positives. There's a very well set-up improvement board, a good improvement plan, and committed senior leaders from all partner agencies."

We all share responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, whether as a parent or family member, a friend or neighbour, an employer, or as a paid or volunteer worker.
