Improved Safeguarding reporting

Date: 31st Dec 2023 Author: Jackie Dawson

As of 1 Jan 2024, concerns will be reported to the HQ Safeguarding team quicker, as all adults are asked to call them first, not their local team. The “Yellow Card“, our best practice summary of ‘Safeguarding Code of Conduct for Adults’ has been updated.

Each district should have ordered new copies of the Yellow Card for all adults, check how you can get hold of yours.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
