Cumbria LSCB - Particular Interest Groups

In addition to the core business and functions of the LSCB, we have decided, as a Board, to focus on some areas that require further or emerging focus and we have called these Particular Interests:

Early Help

It is vital that we have a clear articulation of our Early Help arrangements and that we focus significant effort on prevention as opposed to the incidence of abuse.

Chaired by: Jonathan Taylor, Cumbria Children and Family Services

Suicide and Self-Harm (Health and Wellbeing Board)

In addition to this being an area that demands our attention, suicide of a young person has been evident in previous Serious Case Reviews.

Chaired by: Dr Jane Mathieson, Public Health

Neglect

We are aware that the impact of neglect can be a hugely damaging for children and young people.   Practitioners working with children and families where neglect is a factor have told us that they would welcome practice guidance to enable them to develop their knowledge and skills in this aspect of their practice.

Chaired by: Deborah Evans, Cumbria Children and Family Services
