Safeguarding

Safeguarding – are you concerned about a person's safety, welfare or wellbeing?

Safeguarding is about protecting adults and children; it’s everyone’s responsibility and the implications for getting it wrong cannot ever be under estimated. When we talk about protecting adults and children, this includes customers, employees and indeed anyone we come into contact with. As a trusted partner, Orbit will play its role in supporting local authorities to deliver their statutory obligations and this is quite simply about us being able to identify safeguarding issues and then raising an alert to the relevant Local Authority/Safeguarding team.

If in you are concerned about someone’s safety or wellbeing please report this to your Local Authority Safeguarding team. To find your Local Authority please use the following link: www.gov.uk/find-local-council

If you are at immediate risk of harm or can see that someone else is please contact the Police on 999.  Further information on contacting the Police can be found on the following link: www.police.uk/contact/
