Who we are

The Birmingham Safeguarding Children Partnership (BSCP) oversees how organisations work together to safeguard and promote the wellbeing of children and young people in Birmingham.

Birmingham City Council, West Midlands Police, NHS Birmingham and Solihull Integrated Care Board, working in close collaboration with Birmingham Children’s Trust, have a shared statutory responsibility for leading safeguarding arrangements to ensure that safeguarding children is everyone’s business. Our Executive Board is supported by a Safeguarding Leaders Assembly and Sub-Group structure which embeds learning from local child safeguarding practice reviews, commissions multi-agency training, and co-ordinates a programme of quality assurance and audit to continuously improve safeguarding practice.

The partnership works collaboratively across wide range of agencies to develop a transparent learning culture, implement best practice, and strives to make a real difference for children and young people across Birmingham.
