Welcome to Devon Safeguarding Children Board (DSCB). The Board has the responsibility for coordinating and scrutinising the effectiveness of services being delivered to children and young people across Devon.
Although much work has been done to ensure that children and young people are kept safe from harm and abuse, there is still more to be done to ensure that all children and young people continue to be safe from harm or neglect and to have all the opportunities available to them to reach their full potential.
The Devon Safeguarding Children Board depends on everyone, whether professionals, volunteers, parents, or members of the public having an understanding of their own personal or professional responsibility to safeguard children.
This site aims to provide information to parents and carers, children and young people and professionals who work with them. The site will be maintained and up dated on a regular basis to ensure the information contained within it reflects the best possible information that is available.
