Boards Affiliated to the MSAB & MSCB
The MSAB and MSCB are affiliated to a number of other statutory boards.
Safeguarding is everyone’s business and many different agencies and strategic partnerships are involved, working together to make the child’s journey from needing help to receiving help as quick and easy as possible.
The aim of our Inter Board Protocol with the Manchester Children’s Board, the Manchester Community Safety Partnership and the Manchester Health & Wellbeing Board is to support these key partnerships to operate effectively in terms of safeguarding children, by being clear about their respective roles, responsibilities and relationship to each other.
You can read the Manchester Inter Board protocol (July 2017) here.
