Safeguarding Children

Milton Keynes Council is committed to making sure that everyone living in Milton Keynes is safe and protected and that our specific statutory responsibilities to safeguard children and vulnerable adults are effectively met.

The council is part of the Milton Keynes Safeguarding Children Board (MKSCB), which is the key statutory mechanism for ensuring organisations in Milton Keynes work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

MKSCB is responsible for monitoring the effectiveness of partnership work across these organisations and it monitors how local services and professionals cooperate in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people across Milton Keynes.
