Working Together to Safeguard Children

safeguarding

What to do if you are concerned about the welfare of a child.

A child is in immediate danger. What should I do?

If a child is in immediate danger, do not hesitate to call 999 and report your concern to the police.

Are you concerned about the safety or welfare of a child?

You don’t need to know everything about the child before contacting Children’s Services. If you are concerned about the welfare of a child, it is important that you talk to someone about this.

Contact Children’s Services on 0300 555 1384

Are you concerned about someone working with children?

If you are concerned about the conduct of a member of staff, either in a paid or voluntary capacity, contact the Local Area Designated Officer (LADO).

Contact the LADO on 01962 876 364

Do you work in the community?

If your job involves entering and working in people’s homes and something concerns you about a child, contact Children’s Services.
