Northamptonshire’s Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) is set to recruit a new independent chair in the New Year.

The current chairman of the LSCB, Kevin Crompton, has accepted an offer from Bedford Borough Council to take up a new role as the director of children’s and adults services.

Mr Crompton said: “The post I have been offered represents a further professional challenge for me and is also closer to my home, making it an opportunity I could not ignore and I am very pleased to have been appointed.”

Councillor Catherine Boardman, Northamptonshire County Council’s cabinet member for children, said: “Kevin joined us at a very challenging time for the county and has helped steer the Safeguarding Children Board along its improvement journey so that it is best placed to challenge all partners.
