Safeguarding of Both Vulnerable Adults and Children

Safeguarding is everyone's business. For us in Weston on the Green it is Oxfordshire County Council that has the duty to deliver overall Safeguarding services. They have the responsibility to make sure the safeguarding response is coordinated. To that end the Parish Council wanted to highlight the following advice on what to do if you are concerned of a safeguarding issue:

For Emergencies

If a child or young person is in immediate danger, left alone or missing and/or a vulnerable adult is at immediate risk, you should contact the emergency services immediately on 999.

For Non-Emergencies

Members of the public can raise their concerns with Oxfordshire County Council as follows:
