The Portsmouth Safeguarding Children’s Board (PSCB) brings together all the main organisations who work with children and families in Portsmouth, with the aim of ensuring that they work together effectively to keep children safe.

The core legislation underpinning the work of the PSCB is the Children Act 1989 and the Children Act 2004. The PSCB’s objectives, as set out in Working Together to Safeguard Children 2013, are:

  • to co-ordinate the work of agencies to safeguard children and promote the welfare of children within Portsmouth
  • to ensure the effectiveness of safeguarding children in Portsmouth
