What is the role of the Scrutineer?

The Independent Scrutineer evaluates the effectiveness of the Safeguarding partnership which is made up of senior representatives from the key statutory and voluntary organisations that have responsibility for delivering services to children or have regular contact with children.

The Independent Scrutineer is independent of the local agencies so that the ERSCP can exercise its local challenge function effectively.

Who is responsible for appointing or removing the LSCP chair or Independent Scrutineer?

It is the responsibility of the Chief Executive to appoint or remove the ERSCP Chair or Independent Scrutineer with the agreement of a panel including ERSCP partners. The Chief Executive, drawing on other ERSCP partners and, where appropriate, the Lead Member will hold the Scrutineer to account for the effective working of the ERSCP.
