Safeguarding

Report a concern

REGARDLESS of the circumstances and who is involved  – if you see or hear something that makes you think that a child, young person or vulnerable adult is being neglected or abused in any way DO NOT HESITATE to report your concerns.

Do not attempt to investigate or resolve the issue yourself.

During Office Hours contact either of the fully trained independent Safeguarding Officers below, without delay.

Out of Office where a child or adult is in serious danger then phone 999 / 101
