Types of Safeguarding concerns can include: 

More specific concerns which fall into multiple areas listed above include: 

  • Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

    • The removal of external female genitalia. This is against the law in the UK and is seen as a form of child abuse.

  • Forced Marriage 

    • Forced into a marriage, without consent. This could include threats both physically and emotionally.

  • Radicalisation 

    • The process in which a person is subjected to in order to become a support of terrorism and extremism. 

A healthy relationship, personal or professional, is where you feel safe, respected and free to be yourself.  

You can put measures in place to stay safe and protect yourself:

  • When travelling alone research your route and choose the safer option, try to travel with a companion when possible or try and make someone aware of your where-abouts.

  • Do not take gifts from people who you do not know or are uncomfortable receiving goods from. 

  • Tell someone you trust if someone is making you feel uncomfortable. 

  • Report all suspicious behaviour to a parent, mentor, manager, assessor or safeguarding representative. 

  • Shout out if someone is asking you to do something you are not comfortable with. 

It is also important to understand how to keep yourself safe online: 

  • Do not share personal information such as your mobile number and address.

  • Remember people who you meet online may not be the person they say they are!

  • Be aware that posts you share could be seen and shared by anyone.

  • Remember you can block people who you do not want to be associated with.

  • It something makes you feel uncomfortable online report it to a parent, mentor, manager, assessor or safeguarding representative.
