1. Safeguarding

What to do:

If a child or an adult at risk is in immediate danger, call the police on 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 or if necessary report the matter to the Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police without delay.

Our Safeguarding Officer is Keith Lloyd, 01435 883264.
