About Swindon Borough Council

Swindon is bold and ambitious in its plans, with a clear vision and direction for the future. One of our four Council pledges is to help people to help themselves while protecting our most vulnerable children and adults.  Our status as one of the UK’s fastest growing towns is driving transformational change, led through the Swindon Programme. Swindon aspires to be the UK’s most innovative, productive city, with excellent existing communication links and one of the most affordable housing market areas in the south of the country.

Our Journey

We are committed to ensuring that every child is given the support they need to grow and thrive safely and we have pledged extensive additional funding over the next 2 years to support this. Children’s Services has strong corporate and member support to move forward on a significant journey of development and change.  We are seeking to progress this by enhancing our services and expanding our Social Worker teams to make a difference, ensuring we have a real impact on the lives of children and young people of our Town.
