How many newsletters or briefings are you sent and expected to read?  Plenty I imagine. Having thought long and hard about the best way to communicate key messages from the City and Hackney Safeguarding Children Board (CHSCB), we've decided to change our approach.

Each month, we'll be sending a short, but focused briefing on the key things that you need to know with regards to safeguarding children and young people. Taking a "little but often" approach to our communications, we will target this briefing at contemporary themes with the intention of keeping you up to date on what really matters.  With the forthcoming launch of our new website and Twitter account, we intend to widen our communication reach and keep you more regularly updated on the key local and national messages concerning multi-agency safeguarding.

If there is anything that you think staff or volunteers should know, please don't hesitate to get in touch with the Board team at
