Medway Safeguarding Children’s Board seeks two new Lay Members


The Medway Safeguarding Children’s Board is seeking two new Lay Members, if this is of interest to you full details can be found here on the website.

Vacancy Description

Do you want to help keep children safe in Medway?

Have you got some time to spare?

The Medway Safeguarding Children Board (MSCB) is looking to recruit two representatives who are resident within Medway, and members of the local community, to become Lay Members of our Board.

This is a great opportunity to help us ensure that all agencies are safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people across Medway.

The MSCB is the statutory mechanism for the safeguarding and protection of children in Medway. It sets out how agencies should work together to safeguard children and monitors how well they are doing. The Board is made up of senior professionals from partner agencies that are responsible for safeguarding children such as Medway Council, the Police, health agencies and schools.

We are looking for individuals who are able to contribute a community perspective to the work of the Board on safeguarding children and who are able to bring a different perspective from the professional interests.

Lay Members will operate as full members of the Board attending six half day meetings per year and may also participate in a small number of working groups. Appointments will be for three years with a commitment of at least ten days per year. The role is voluntary but an induction will be provided along with training opportunities.

Closing date: Friday 22nd May 2015
