Report safeguarding concerns

Our safeguarding policy

We are committed to ensuring that all children and adults at risk are protected and kept safe from harm whilst they are engaged in services commissioned, organised or provided directly by us.

We safeguard, promote wellbeing and protect children and adults at risk in several ways:

  • Raising awareness of signs and reporting mechanisms with employees, elected members and volunteers and providing training appropriate to their needs.
  • Passing on any safeguarding concerns we have to appropriate agencies.
  • Ensuring the council follows safer recruitment procedures.
  • Working effectively with other agencies to safeguard children and adults at risk.
