Safeguarding children is part of everything the Trust does.

All Trust staff, whatever their role in the organisation, have a legal duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children (unborn up to 18th birthday).

The Trust has a corporate Safeguarding Children Team to support mental health directorates in City and Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Bedfordshire and Luton, addictions services in Bedfordshire and a Wellbeing Service in Richmond. It also has a Safeguarding Children Team to support Community Health Services in Newham.

The Trust is an active member of six local safeguarding children boards (LSCBs) – those in City & Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Luton and has representation at their executive boards and sub-groups.
