About us

The Wigan Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB) oversees all organisations in Wigan and Leigh that work with children and young people and have a responsibility for safeguarding them.

The board has a legal duty to supervise the work of the child protection system and the work of the supporting groups, helping agencies communicate and work together effectively, tackling any problems to meeting priorities, and maintaining the principles and values.

We aim to keep children and young people safe

  • Ensuring effective communication and co-operation between the many agencies responsible for Safeguarding in Wigan
  • Supporting those who work with children and young people so they are aware of and follow child safeguarding procedures, providing safeguarding training, and investigating reports of safeguarding breaches and concerns
  • Supporting parents and carers where they may have problems and investigating reports of safeguarding concerns.
