Report a safeguarding concern

Essex County Council run social services in this area, and so they will handle any safeguarding concerns.

Our policy

We have adopted a Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy, as we are committed to protecting vulnerable people.

Our policy is relevant to:

  • our employees
  • our elected members
  • any consultants, contractors and agency staff working for us
  • members of the public volunteering with us
  • organisations, companies and individuals who are suppliers to us

If you are not included in our policy, you can find more information on safeguarding via:

We provide our employees with training, supervision and support, so that they are:

  • able to identify potential indicators of abuse
  • less likely to become involved in actions that may cause harm to vulnerable individuals
  • less likely to do anything that could be misinterpreted

When suppliers, contractors and consultants work with us, they need to agree to follow our safeguarding standards.
