The Essex Safeguarding Children Board (ESCB) is a statutory multi agency organisation which brings together agencies who work to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people in Essex. The Children Act 2004 required every local authority to set up a Local Safeguarding Children Board. The ESCB is Essex's response to this.
The aim of the Board is to improve outcomes for children by co-ordinating the work of local agencies to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and ensuring the effectiveness of that work. The ESCB works with Essex County Council, Essex Police, Essex Probation, Education Services, Health Services and the Voluntary Sector. We also do work with the Southend and Thurrock Local Safeguarding Children Boards.
