Trafford Safeguarding Children Board

"The work of the TSCB is progressed through its Committees. The Chairs Committee is made up of all the Committees chairs and led by the Independent Chair of the TSCB, whose aim is to drive and deliver the work of the TSCB."

The TSCB has a key role in achieving high standards in safeguarding and promoting welfare, not just through co-ordination but by evaluation and continuous improvement. For example, this could be by asking individual organisations to self-evaluate under an agreed framework of benchmarks or indicators and then sharing results with the Board. It might also involve leading multi-agency arrangements to contribute to self-evaluation reports.

In Trafford this function is carried out by the Performance, Management and Audit Committee on behalf of the TSCB.
