Logging a concern

If you have seen or experienced something which you don’t think is right and is concerning you, support is available and we want to prevent this from reoccurring. We can only do this if concerns are shared and we know that this can be challenging. You can now share your concerns with the Safeguarding Team by completing the safeguarding online form and this can be completed anonymously if you wish to.

All concerns will be treated sensitively and confidentially. However, in the event that an individual is at serious risk of harm, we may share information with other agencies such as the emergency services or social care.

It is important you feel safe, if you are worried or concerned about yourself or someone you know, please talk to us:
