Social care services in Wiltshire help people live safely and independently in their local communities. There are a wide range of services for children and families and for adults and their carers. Services include family support, home care, residential care, fostering and adoption.
Children’s Services are now delivered through an integrated Department for Children & Education. Our trained staff deal with children in foster or residential care, with issues of child protection, children with special needs and young offenders.
Adult are is provided by the Department of Community Services. It arranges a range of social care services to older people and people with a learning disability or physical impairment. It aims to deliver services to people who need a rapid response to a crisis, need help to maintain their independence where they have complex needs and to promote preventative services which help people remain well and independent.
