Children and young people

Are you a child or a young person?

If something is worrying you or making you scared and you're not sure if it is abuse, it's important to talk to someone you trust and we can help.

What is safeguarding?

Safeguarding is a bit of a fancy way of saying “keeping children and young people safe”. Safeguarding is also about making sure children and young people get the best opportunities in life and that they:

  • feel safe
  • are happy
  • are healthy
  • have a home
  • have an education
  • have a support network

What is the Local Safeguarding Children Board?

The Local Safeguarding Children Board makes sure that all organisations work together to promote the safety of children and young people in Hammersmith and Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster.

The Board is made up of very senior people from housing, social care, schools, education, the police, health and a few others. We check that all these people are thinking about whether or not children and young people are safe.

The Local Safeguarding Children Board is called the LSCB for short.

Getting help

If you are worried about your safety of the safety of someone else, you can phone and speak to a social worker in your local council’s family services. They are there to listen to what you have to say and will work with other professionals to protect you from harm. Here are the details for contacting a social worker in your borough.

In an emergency call the police on 999.
