Keeping Children Safe Online

Click the image to open the website

There are seven agencies in Essex who are jointly responsible by law for keeping children safe. These are called the Statutory Partners and they are the key decision makers who form the ESCB Executive and are responsible for the direction of travel (with identified relevant partners). The work of the Board is carried out by the Sub-Committees, Stay Safe Groups and Task and Finish Groups. The voice of the child and family will regularly be heard by using existing service user panels, school councils and youth groups.


At the heart of everything we do, is a commitment to work together to keep children safe, by ensuring the highest quality safeguarding arrangements and continuously improving practice.
