We are committed to safeguarding our community so it is a safe place for all to live in. 

Safeguarding is everyone’s business

Abuse is never acceptable in any circumstance and everyone has the right to be safe.

Whilst promoting an approach that focuses on improving life for all concerned, we have embedded a safeguarding culture with the aim of preventing abuse and neglect wherever possible.

It's not always obvious when someone is being abused or neglected. There may be specific signs or your instinct may tell you something is wrong.

Working in partnership with the Community and Safeguarding authorities, we aim to make sure that those using our services are listened to and protected from abuse and neglect.

Reporting a concern

Members of the public can report their concerns through Herts County Council.

Our staff must report all incidents or concerns they have relating to the wellbeing of an individual.

If you wish to report a safeguarding concern using a council service, you can contact our Safeguarding Leads; Sarah Pateman, Community Safety Manager or Pam Dhaliwal, Safeguarding Co-ordinator on 01438 242666.
