About us

Child sad

Bolton Safeguarding Children Board (BSCB) is the partnership responsible for making sure that children and young people in Bolton are safe.

We do this by:

  • Making sure people who work or volunteer with children, young people or their families have access to policies and guidance about keeping children safe
  • Providing information to children, young people and their families about keeping children safe – including about what to do if they think a child is being harmed
  • Making sure organisations such as health, police, probation, the council etc, know what they have to do to keep children safe – and we make sure they do it

BSCB members include representatives from Bolton Council, Health agencies, Police, Probation, local schools, Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service (CAFCASS), the faith and voluntary sector.

Our aim is to make keeping children safe everybody’s business.
