Safeguarding Document

Safeguarding

We take the safeguarding of our children and vulnerable adults seriously. We want to do the best that we can to ensure that all who take part in our services and events are as safe as they can be. We believe that safeguarding is the responsibility of all of us.

If you have any concerns that a child may be at risk of immediate harm, then contact the police on 101 or 999.

If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a Safeguarding Adviser (details below), or if necessary report the matter to the Local Authority Social Services or the Police without delay.
