Wiltshire Safeguarding Children Board
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.
Please see the Child Death protocol and Rapid Response meeting agenda on our policies and guidance page.
