Spring 2022 Update: As colleagues will be aware, the Children's Safeguarding Assurance Partnership (CSAP) has replaced the 3 x former Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) arrangements across the Pan-Lancashire region. As part of our transition, a new single CSAP website (www.safeguardingpartnership.org.uk) covering the Blackpool, Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen areas has been developed and replaces the previous LSCB websites**.
Whilst no longer updated, the previous websites have remained in place throughout this time to support colleagues during the transition period. However, the Lancashire LSCB website will formally cease on Friday 1st July 2022 and will no longer be available after this point.
**Please note that Local Safeguarding Adult Board website arrangements remain unchanged and continue to be available at: https://www.lancashiresafeguarding.org.uk/lancashire-safeguarding-adults
Important Information: Paediatric colleagues across the country have raised concerns that the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) emergency could be causing children more harm. More children present with sepsis than COVID but as the symptoms of sepsis (a life-threatening reaction to an infection and also referred to as blood poisoning) can be very vague, hard to spot (especially in babies and young children) and be very similar to other conditions such as COVID, they are being managed as such. The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have developed an important traffic light system to help parents make the right decisions for their children.
PLEASE NOTE: The Lancashire Safeguarding Children Board ceased to exist with effect from 29th September 2019 and is replaced by the new Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool and Lancashire Children's Safeguarding Assurance Partnership (CSAP). Resources and training remain available for you to access and all pages and documentation will be updated in due course.
