Welcome to the Children & Young People's page of the Swindon Safeguarding Partnership. On this page you will find information about how to keep yourself safe, where to get information and advice and what to do if you are worried and need to get help.  Please use the menu buttons to the side to navigate around this page. 

This guide explains changes made earlier this year to guidance called "Working Together to Safeguard Children". This is the guidance that government sends out to local authorities and services saying what they need to do to keep children safe.

Working Together to Safeguard Children (usually just called Working Together) tells the different professionals – like teachers, doctors, school nurses, health visitors, social workers and others – and organisations working with you and your family, what they should be doing to improve your life and to keep you safe from abuse and neglect. In Working Together, ‘children’ means anyone who is not yet 18 years old.

This Children’s Guide has been written to help explain the Working Together guidance. It might be useful to you if you have questions about help you think that you or someone you are worried about should be getting.

Thanks for visiting!
