Safeguarding children, young people and adults

We take safeguarding very seriously at MSV and have a responsibility to work with agencies to protect people from harm.  We work across a wide range of local authority areas with a focus on legislation such as the Care Act 2014, Children's Act 1989 and the Children and Families Act 2014.

We have a responsibility to ensure that allegations of abuse or suspected abuse are reported.  We also carry out work on safeguarding to identify risks to children, young people and vulnerable adults.

If you have any concerns relating to the safeguarding and protection of any children, young people or vulnerable adults you can:

Report it to the safeguarding team at your Local Authority (you can find the links below)

If you need to report an incident to the Police:

  • Call 101 for a non-emergency
  • Call 999 for an emergency e.g. if someone is in immediate danger

Mental health concerns:  If you are concerned about someone's mental health the Hub of Hope is a fantatstic resource which signposts all mental health services, locally and nationally.
