YMCA is committed to promoting best practice and ensuring that Children, Young People and Adults at Risk are free from harm and abuse. Where harm and abuse is recognised or suspected, YMCA expects staff and volunteers to respond and refer in accordance with our policy and operational procedures.
If you need to speak to someone about a safeguarding concern, you can:
- call the Police on 999 if the concern presents an immediate threat to a person’s safety
- call a YMCA Designated Safeguarding Lead, if the concern relates to a YMCA service user, staff member, volunteer, or activities taking place within YMCA buildings –
If you are a staff member or volunteer submitting safeguarding information, please keep this email as confirmation of receipt.
If you need to make a child protection referral please contact the Family Front Door on 01905 822666. The Family Front Door, Initial Contact and Referral Team is the central point for all referrals for children and young people aged 0 to 18 years and living in Worcestershire where there is safeguarding or child protection concerns for them.
