Safeguarding

REPORTING A CONCERN

If you have a concern about a Mentee/Young Person or Mentor and need advice or support, contact our MindJam Safeguarding team.

Head of Safeguarding: Vikki Hearst

Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead/s: Sam Hollandt, Leo Worsdale

If you need advice regarding a potential safeguarding concern, and for all other safeguarding queries, please email safeguarding@mindjam.org.uk.

If you need to report a safeguarding concern, please complete the webform below.

A safeguarding concern, allegation or disclosure could be anything relating to a child’s or adult’s safety or welfare. Or it could be about the potential risk a person may pose to others. 

Please complete the form with as much detail as you can; this should tell the story to date. Upon receipt the form will be reviewed by the Head of Safeguarding who will either open an active case or close the concern at referral. You will be advised of an outcome by a member of the Safeguarding team. Allocations will be completed in order of emerging priority.

For immediate harm / danger you must call the police or the Out of Hours Emergency Duty team for your Local Children’s Services. You can ask for advice on how to do this by contacting the Head of Safeguarding out of hours.
