Welcome to Milton Keynes Safeguarding Board (MKSB) website.
Keeping Children Safe is Everybody’s Business; MKSB works with partner agencies in Milton Keynes to protect children and young people from harm. The MKSB agrees how local services and professionals should work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
Our resources page below allows for quick and easy access to the local Levels of Needs threshold document, screening tools (FGM and CSE) and referral forms to Milton Keynes Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH)
The role of the LADO is set out in Working Together to Safeguard Children (2015) and is governed by the Authorities duties under section 11 of the Children Act 2004 and MKSCB Inter-Agency Policy and Procedures (Ch 2.8). This guidance outlines procedures for managing allegations against people who work with children who are paid, unpaid, volunteers, casual, agency or anyone self employed.
The LADO* must be contacted within one working day in respect of all cases in which it is alleged that a person who works with children has:
- behaved in a way that has harmed, or may have harmed a child;
- possibly committed a criminal offence against or related to a child; or
- behaved towards a child or children in a way that indicates they may pose a risk of harm to children.
The Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub, known as MASH, brings together professionals from partner agencies to deal with safeguarding concerns, where someone is concerned about the safety or wellbeing of a child. Information from partner agencies is collated within the MASH to assess risk and decide what action to take. As a result, the agencies are able to act quickly, in a coordinated and consistent way, ensuring that vulnerable children and families are kept safe.
