Full details on the county’s policies, procedures and processes with regard to safeguarding can be accessed through the Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership (CSCP) website at: https://www.cumbriasafeguardingchildren.co.uk
The site also has a parental information zone.
If you ever have concerns about the safety or well-being of a child, then you can ring your concerns through to the County’s 24 hour ‘Safeguarding Hub’ number and you can remain anonymous if you wish.
Callers can outline their concerns and the Safeguarding Hub will give advice (consultation) and if necessary, undertake an assessment of need.
Call: 0333 240 1727
There is now also an adult NSPCC helpline where any concerned adult can seek advice if they are concerned about a child and would like advice on whether to make a referral.
The number to call is: 0808 800 5000
