How to report a concern

1st November

We are sorry that you have seen, heard, or been involved in a safeguarding issue that requires you to report it to us, we hope you are ok, and we are happy to support you as much as we can.


Whatever you have seen, heard, or been involved in, please click on the link below or send us an email and tell us as much as you can about what has happened, who did what and anything else that you can remember. You don’t have to remember every detail, or write it in a special way, just tell us everything you can and in your own way.

Whistleblowing in a safeguarding context means revealing and raising concerns over misconduct or malpractice within an organisation, or within an independent structure associated with it.

It can be used as an early warning system or when it’s recognised that appropriate actions have not been taken. 

Any adult or young person with concerns about a colleague’s conduct towards a child, young person or adult at risk, can report this to the Safeguarding Team by emailing or using our other reporting methods.

For any other whistleblowing concerns please email
