Reporting Concerns


Safeguarding is everybody’s business.

If you are concerned about an adult with care and support needs, who is experiencing, or at risk of, abuse or neglect, the best way to report your concerns is to make a safeguarding referral.





If you suspect or believe a child is suffering or is likely to suffer significant harm, including any form of mistreatment or abuse, or if you are concerned about your own behaviour and need advice or support – please contact the Front Door for Families (previously the MASH) by calling (01273) 290400 or emailing

You can also use the Online Referral Form to make a Child Protection Referral to the Front Door for Families
