Safeguarding is everyone’s business!
If you suspect or believe a child is suffering, or is likely to suffer, significant harm (including any form of mistreatment or abuse) you should ALWAYS report your concerns
In an emergency always dial 999
If there is no immediate danger to the child, or if you need some advice or information, you can contact the Children Services Customer Service Centre (CSC) on 01522 782111. If it is outside normal office hours you can contact the Emergency Duty Team (EDT) on 01522 782333
LCVYS also has a wealth of knowledge around safeguarding children and young people and have our very own safeguarding officer and e safety officer within our trustees. Please feel free to contact us for advice and support, or to find out about what training we can offer for your group.
