Safeguarding

Safeguarding is about protecting children, young people and adults at risk from abuse or neglect. If you are worried or concerned about the way you or someone you know is being treated, tell someone you trust.

Look, listen, let us know

Take a look at this short animation which explains how important it is that we are all aware of our safeguarding responsibilities – of being alert to signs of abuse, harm or neglect of people living or working around us and telling us when you are concerned.

If you are worried or concerned about a child, young person or adult, who you think is being abused or neglected - TELL US

Safeguarding is all about us working together to make sure that children, young people and adults are safe and protected, free from harm, abuse or neglect. Adults should also be free to make their own choices.

If you are worried, concerned or scared about the way you, or someone you know is being treated, or is treating themselves, don’t keep it to yourself, tell us.  For any concern you consider to be an emergency call 999.
