New Form to Report Safeguarding Concerns
Southend, Essex and Thurrock (SET) Safeguarding Partnerships have updated the form used to report safeguarding concerns.
The change in the new (SET SAF) form gives the potential victim of abuse or exploitation an opportunity to identify how they should be contacted.
Going forward, all safeguarding referrals should be made using the updated form.
