Refreshed Pre-Birth Protocol
The refreshed multi-agency pre-birth protocol was agreed by the Lancashire Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) on 14 September 2012 and is now operational.
The purpose of the protocol is to ensure that a clear system is in place to develop robust plans which address the need for early support and services and identify any risks to unborn children. The joint protocol applies particularly to staff working within Children's Social Care, Health and the Police, but is of relevance to all agencies that work with parents, children and their families.
A copy of the protocol is available to download below.
