Working together to keep children safe in Wiltshire
Welcome to the Wiltshire Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB)
Serious Case Review Baby J has now been published.
The case involved a 6 ½ week old baby who sustained injuries, that were considered to be non-accidental, whilst in the care of his parents. The family were known to services.
The report highlights the importance of all agencies working together and response to the learning is being taken forward by the WSCB Early Intervention Sub group. The SCR was conducted by Karen Tudor, Independent Reviewer, and the full report can be found here.
Wiltshire Safeguarding Children Board is supporting the national campaign organised by the Department for Education to encourage people to report any concern, no matter how small, of child abuse and neglect. If you're worried about a child please contact 0300 4560108 to report your concern.
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.
WSCB Training has information about WSCB Multi-agency Training Programme including the Training Brochure and information about how to update your training.
