Safeguarding – it’s everyone’s business

Caerphilly County Borough Council is reminding everyone that the safeguarding of vulnerable children, young people and adults is everyone’s responsibility.

This week is National Safeguarding Week (14 – 18 November) and we can all play a key role in ensuring that any concerns about safeguarding are reported to the appropriate agencies.

Cllr Elaine Forehead, Cabinet Member for Social Care said, “The council is committed to creating caring communities to ensure that residents feel safe and protected. We all have a responsibility to ensure that children and adults are treated with respect and protected from others who may abuse them.”

If you have any concerns about a child, young person or vulnerable adult, you can report your concerns to the following:

Adults: 0808 100 2500 /

Children: 0808 100 1727 /
