New Multi-Agency Safeguarding Arrangements for Reading

Working Together 2018 has disestablished the requirement for Local Safeguarding Children Boards. The three LSCBs of Reading, Wokingham and West Berkshire have worked closely together for many years, with a shared Independent Chair and a number of shared sub-groups. These three LSCBs have come together to create the Berkshire West Safeguarding Children Partnership.

Details of our new arrangements can be viewed here www.berkshirewestccg.nhs.uk/MASA

As we work towards full implementation (by the end of June 2019) all current contact information will remain the same.


Safeguarding is Everybody's Business

Reading Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB), in conjunction with the West of Berkshire Safeguarding Adults Board, have produced a safeguarding film to raise awareness of safeguarding issues for children and adults and how to report a concern.

Follow this link to view the film: Reading Safeguarding Video - with subtitles. Different download options are available, click on the 'Clip Info/Download' button to select.

Thank you to Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children Board and Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board for commissioning the original film and Reading Football Club for their support.
