Safeguarding is Everybody's Business

Reading LSCB Annual Report 2014-15 - Young People's Version

Every year the LSCB is required to produce an annual report.  It's aim is to provide an insight into the work carried out locally to safeguard children, outline progress made during the year and summarise the key priorities and challenges ahead.  This year we have produced a video version for young people which can be viewed here: LSCB Annual Report 2014/15 Young People's Version

Thank you to our Young Carers group who produced the video for us.  The full annual report can be viewed on the Annual Report page: www.readinglscb.org.uk/about-lscb/lscb-annual-report/
