Safeguarding for Children and Adults

We have a statutory responsibility to make sure that the organisations from which we commission services provide a safe system that safeguards children and vulnerable adults.

This includes specific responsibilities for looked after children and for supporting the Child Death Overview process.

If you would like more information about safeguarding, or would like to talk to someone about a concern, then we encourage you to visit one of these websites:
