Newham Safeguarding Children Partnership

Welcome to the Newham Safeguarding Children Partnership

Publication of a Serious Case Review,  Family K

Newham LSCB jointly with Hounslow LSCB commissioned a Serious Case Review in July 2018 following a serious incident (in Hounslow) when an infant suffered severe knife injuries when his father attacked him and his mother. The family had recently relocated in Hounslow from Newham at the time of the incident. An update on the recommendations will be monitored and updated by the NSCP safeguarding child practice review group, when completed the actions will be passed to the NSCP performance and quality assurance group to test the embedding the embedding of the recommendations across the partnership when undertaking partnership audits.

Covid 19 Information – Safeguarding Children

During the current COVID-19 arrangements, more people will be volunteering and coming across people and situations they have not seen before.
As a volunteer is important you create a safe and welcoming environment, where everyone is respected and valued, this behaviour is at the heart of safeguarding. It’s about making sure you play a part in identifying or preventing harm, harassment, bullying, abuse and neglect. It’s also about being ready to respond safely and well if there is a problem. Safeguarding children is really important. A child or young person means anyone under the age of 18 – this means protecting individual children from abuse and maltreatment or preventing harm to children’s health or development.

An interactive webinar safeguarding training is available for anyone supporting the COVID19 outreach effort. To find out more please contact LSCB.Administrator@newham.gov.uk.

If you are worried about a child call 020 3373 4600 (9am – 5.15pm) OR 020 8430 2000 (other times), if it is an emergency dial 999.

As part of this, the board will :

  • develop child protection procedures and policies
  • ensure child protection work is of a consistently high standard
  • arrange training for staff who work with children, parents and families
  • raise awareness generally about the need to protect children and how members of the public can help.
