Safeguarding Board

Welcome to the British Forces Germany (BFG) Safeguarding Website.

The BFG Safeguarding Childrens Board was set up under the authority of the General Officer Commanding (GOC) in line with Joint Services Publication (JSP) 834. The BFG SCB works within the principles under Section 13 of the Children Act 2004.

From September 2014 the Safeguarding Children Board will be known as the Safeguarding Board to mirror the MOD Safeguarding Board and include the needs of vulnerable adults.

BFG SCB agrees how local services and professionals should work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. The policies and procedures are developed by the BFG SCB and its subgroups and are regularly reviewed and updated in line with national legislation, regulations and guidance in the UK primarily the Children Act 1989 and 2004 and Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015.

The policies, procedures and guidance are available online and can be accessed at all times.

 

This website is designed to provide easy access to useful relevant information to assist children, young people, families, professionals and organisations in relation to all safeguarding matters within the BFG and EJSU areas of responsibility.
