Locality Community Support Service (LCSS)
Locality Community Support Service (LCSS) will provide advice and guidance to universal services, including schools, health services and voluntary and community groups to enable them to support vulnerable children, young people and families within their community. They will also work closely with professionals to identify the most vulnerable families who require additional support from the Family Support Service. Professionals who have concerns about a child or family where it is not an immediate safeguarding issue, can make a report to the LCSS.
Members of the public can also ring the NSPCC helpline on 0808 800 5000 if they have any concerns about a child.
