Junior LSCB (Local Safeguarding Children Board)

What is the Junior LSCB?

LSCB stands for 'Local Safeguarding Children Board' and it is made up of adults who meet and plan ways to help children and young people stay safe. 

The Super Safety Squad is the junior part of the LSCB and they are a group of children who work together to think about how to keep children safe. Adults don't always know what's really important to children so the Super Safety Squad find out and then tell them.  

Anti-bullying event

Each year the 'FAB Awards You!' event is hosted by children from the Junior LSCB to celebrate and share anti-bullying work from schools and community settings across South Tyneside. 

2017 was the year of the 8th awards and was marked by the involvement of 21 schools/community groups and the addition of two new award categories; the Inclusion Award and the Role Model Award.
