Our commitment

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people, and adults at risk of harm and we expect all of our employees, elected members, volunteers, or anyone working on behalf of, delivering a service for or representing the council to share this commitment by following our safeguarding policies and procedures if they become aware of a concern during the course of their work or activity.

As a member of the public, if you would like to report a concern you have about an adult or a child, please contact emergency services by phoning 999 if a crime is being committed, or if a child or adult is in immediate danger.

If there is no immediate danger but you have safeguarding concerns about a child or adult, then contact Leicestershire police on 101 if you think a crime has been committed or alternatively contact Leicestershire County Council Social Care using the links below:
