Child Safeguarding

If you have any concerns or complaint about a child or children whom you suspect are at risk or are subjected to abuse or neglect then please let one of the members of our staff know immediately.  We have policies and protocols in place to deal with such reports in a professional and confidential manner.  We may refer such cases to other affiliated bodies who would be able to provide more specialized help and support after an assessment of the concern.  Any child or young person between 0-17 years of age whom you suspect is subject to abuse or neglect should be reported and your help would mean the safety and security of this person.  For further guidance or support please refer to the following website:

Adult Safeguarding

All adults 18 years and over have a right to be treated with dignity and respect.  Some adults may be vulnerable due to a disability, fraility or for another reason who may not know how or where to get help and support to end their misery.  You can help by alerting us if you suspect that they are mistreated or abused or who may need help and support as there are no one else to look after them.

Additionally you can find further guidance and support from the following website:

FGM - Female Genital Mutilation


Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a procedure where the female genitals are deliberately cut, injured or changed, but where there's no medical reason for this to be done.

It's also known as "female circumcision" or "cutting", and by other terms such as sunna, gudniin, halalays, tahur, megrez and khitan, among others.

FGM is usually carried out on young girls between infancy and the age of 15, most commonly before puberty starts. It is illegal in the UK and is child abuse.
