student lscb

We are a group of students who have volunteered to provide a young person’s voice and opinion to the work of the Leeds Safeguarding Children Board. The group is currently made up of Lauren, Reiss, Arfaan, Ellie and Abbie.

Our role as a Student LSCB member is to:

  • Advise the Board from a young person’s perspective;
  • Assist in understanding how to attract and maintain the interests of young people;
  • Act as a ‘voice and influence’ for other young people, making sure their thoughts and feelings are considered in decisions that affect them;
  • Conduct research and consultations to ensure the work of the LSCB relates to the needs of young people;
  • Engage directly with other young people;
  • Feedback what has changed as a result of their work at Board meetings.

 

Formed in January 2013, we meet on a weekly basis in term time and have accomplished the following:

  • Lead the design of the children and young people’s pages of the LSCB website
  • Attended and presented at LSCB Board meetings
  • Attended and delivered workshops at the LSCB annual conference
  • Took part in interview panels for appointing staff
  • Developed campaigns on CSE targetting teenagers
