Safeguarding Children

The Safeguarding Children Service for Cambridgeshire includes a Safeguarding Children team and Looked After Children (LAC) team of dedicated nurses and administrators.

The Safeguarding Children team safeguards and promotes the welfare of children and young people by providing advice, support, guidance and training for CCS NHS Trust staff. The team also provide Safeguarding Children Supervision for a number of teams across the Trust.

The LAC health team conduct assessments for all children in care within Cambridgeshire and 20 miles outside the border. The team also conduct assessments for other authorities children placed within Cambridgeshire. Some of our Cambridgeshire LAC are placed in other counties and we request health assessments to be undertaken by other LAC health teams.

The Safeguarding Children service works closely with both statutory and voluntary agencies to address safeguarding and child protection issues. The team also develop and update policy and undertake a number of internal and multi-agency audits to ensure the health and welfare needs of all children are being met.
