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
Alongside our Safeguarding Policy, which you can read below, we now also have a leaflet explaining the importance and key principles of Safeguarding, along with a Cause for Concern Form. This is a form for you to use if you see or hear anything which you think is concerning and needs to be raised with our Safeguarding Co-ordinator.
Our Safeguarding Policy
In the Emmanuel Group of Churches we do our utmost to ensure that everyone in our community is kept safe.
All staff and volunteers working with children and vulnerable adults are safely recruited. Once in position, all undergo regular DBS checks and are required to attend compulsory ongoing safeguarding training.
For more information about how we seek to do this, read our Safeguarding Policy
