About the CYSCB

Welcome to the City of York's Safeguarding Children Board's website.

Our vision is "For all the children of York to grow up in safety and to always feel safe."

The City of York's Safeguarding Children Board (CYSCB) is a statutory multi-agency forum for ensuring that different services co-operate to protect children and young people in York. We seek assurance and evidence that the children of York are protected from all forms of abuse and neglect in order to confirm that everybody working with children works effectively together.

If you would like to contact the CYSCB Unit please write to the City of York Safeguarding Children Board, West Offices, Station Rise, York YO1 6GA
