Safeguarding

Safeguarding icon

The safeguarding of children and adults at risk is everyone's responsibility. The information in this section include guides on what to do and who to contact if you are worried that a child or adult at risk is being abused or is at risk of harm.

As commissioners we strive to ensure that all the services we commission have good safeguarding arrangements in place to safeguard and promote the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk living in our communities.

We aim to be an inclusive organisation firmly placing families at the heart of commissioning and delivery of services. We work in partnership with children, young people, and adults at risk, parents/carers and colleagues in other agencies making sure that every person matters.

The Clinical Commissioning Group’s statutory safeguarding duties are outlined in national and local guidance and reflected in the organisation's safeguarding documents.

To contact the NHS Cheshire CCG Designated Safeguarding Professionals (adults, children and cared for children and our Prevent leads), please email the teams on: cheshireccg.safeguardadmin@nhs.net

If you or somebody else is at immediate risk of harm, contact the emergency services by ringing 999 or, if not an emergency, call 101.

If you have a hearing or speech impairment you can use the national telephone relay service - just dial 18001 before the number or 18000 in an emergency.
