Haringey New Safeguarding Arrangements Consultation

This consultation is closed

The consultation ran until 29 May 2019 and is now closed - thank you to everyone who took part.

This page will be updated soon with the consultation results.

What we consulted on


The Children and Social Work Act 2017 replaces Local Safeguarding Children's Boards (LSCBs) with new local safeguarding arrangements, led by the three named statutory safeguarding partners: local authorities, chief officers of police, and clinical commissioning groups (health).

The three partners will assume the responsibilities for safeguarding arrangements that currently sit with LSCBs. They will have a shared and equal duty for new safeguarding arrangements and for working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children in Haringey.

The Children and Social Work Act 2017 also reinforces the duty, which currently exists under section 11 of the Children Act 2004, on local organisations and agencies whose involvement the safeguarding partners consider is required to safeguard and promote the welfare of local children. These agencies are known as relevant agencies.
