Safeguarding Vulnerable People Partnership

The Safeguarding Vulnerable People Partnership (SVPP) was established in early 2019 to replace the Wiltshire Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB).  The SVPP meets regularly to ensure local organisations are working together to safeguard and promote the welfare of local children including identifying and responding to their needs.


The Families & Children Transformation (FACT) Programme takes a a whole-system approach to the way Wiltshire Council works with partners, staff, children, young people and their families. Find out more about the FACT programme.
