Policies, strategies and plans - Safeguarding policy for children and vulnerable adults

Summary

Sevenoaks District Council is dedicated to safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults.  The Council has a corporate Safeguarding Group that meets every 2 months.  The officers that attend the group are the Designated Officers for the Council and if you need to contact them please call 01732 227000 or email safeguarding@sevenoaks.gov.uk

The Council has a duty to report Safeguarding reports and concerns to the relevant investigative authority and in this case would be KCC Adult and Children Social Services or when immediate help is needed the Police. 

Our staff have regular training on all strands of safeguarding from Children and Vulnerable Adults to Prevent (Counter Terrorism), Modern Slavery and Mental Health.

We also work closely with the Kent Safeguarding Children Multi-Agency Partnership and Kent & Medway Adult Safeguarding Board.

If you have a concern and want to report safeguarding you can contact KCC Adult Social Service and KCC Children’s Social Services.
