Under Working Together 2018 (PDF), ‘Local Safeguarding Partners’ are required to oversee multi-agency child safeguarding arrangements across each borough. The Waltham Forest Safeguarding Children Board (WFSCB) is the body that carries out this statutory function in Waltham Forest. It is a partnership of statutory and voluntary sector partners as well as lay members and is chaired by an Independent Scrutineer. It has a range of roles scrutinising and challenging local safeguarding practice. WFSCB works with partners to support the effective collaboration of all services being delivered to children and young people up to the age of eighteen in Waltham Forest so that they are kept safe and well.
