Safeguarding

What to do if you are worried about someone?

FCHO is committed to working with others to ensure that our customers live their lives free from, violence, fear and abuse. Safeguarding is about protecting children and adults from harm, abuse or neglect.

If you are worried that a child or adult may be at risk, there are a number of things you can do:

  • If you suspect that the child or adult is in immediate danger then phone the police on 999
  • If you believe that the child or adult requires emergency medical treatment, phone an ambulance on 999
  • If there is no immediate risk, contact Oldham Council’s Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub
