This website is currently under review and information may not be accurate. We are refreshing the overarching partnership priorities for children and young people in Lancashire and expect these to be published, supported by new governance arrangements, in autumn 2018.

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.
