Wiltshire Safeguarding Children Board

Working together to keep children safe in Wiltshire


Welcome to the Wiltshire Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB) website.

We believe that keeping children and young people safe is everybody’s business. Our website brings together information for Children and Young People, information for parents and carers, and information for the Professionals and Practitioners who work with them.
The website also provides an overview of the WSCB's responsibilities, structure and work of the Board and Sub Groups.

The Child Protection Procedures tab will take you to the South West Child Protection Procedures that Wiltshire are proud to have contributed to, along with 10 other Local Authorities in the South West. In addition there is further guidance on many safeguarding topics under Guidance, Protocols and Policies.

WSCB Training has information about WSCB Multi-agency Training Programme including the Training Brochure and information about how to update your training.


Revised CSE Handbook and new Initial Screening Tool are now available. The new Initial Screening Tool can be used to help identify level of risk of sexual exploitation.
