Welcome to Newcastle Safeguarding Children Board
Newcastle Safeguarding Children Board (NSCB) is the key statutory mechanism for agreeing how organisations will co-operate to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and for ensuring the effectiveness of what they do. Its work crosses the boundaries between the statutory, voluntary and independent sectors and builds upon the best practice achieved by the Area Child Protection Committee. It is proactive in driving forward the duty of all partner agencies in relation to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.
If you have a concern about a child contact:
- Initial Response Service – 0191 277 2500
- Emergency Duty Team – 0191 278 7878
- Northumbria Police – 101 (in an emergency always dial 999)
- NSPCC Helpline – 0808 800 5000
All concerns that a child or young person is suffering or is at risk of suffering significant harm must be referred directly to the Initial Response Service of Children’s Social Care in accordance with the Newcastle Safeguarding Children Board Procedures using the all-agency Referral Form. If your concern is about an adult please go to Safeguarding Adults website.
