Have you noticed or recognised a sign of abuse or neglect? It is your duty to respond safely and effectively.
Report your safeguarding concern to our designated Safeguarding Officers without delay. After any incident or disclosure, make a written record of what you have seen or heard. Be specific, record exact dates, times. (Glenwood Record Forms are available on site.)
The Safeguarding Officer will then advise on the next steps required. Where there is a genuine concern for a person’s safety, it must be referred to the correct authority. In this instance, the Safeguarding Officer will help to escalate the concern with Social Services and the local authority contact, police, or any other relevant partner agencies.
If there is a danger to life, risk of serious injury, a serious crime in progress or about to happen, ring 999 immediately.
