All Impact Gamers directors, workers and volunteers know how important keeping young people safe is, how vital it is to report concerns and that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
We are regularly trained and subscribe to https://thirtyoneeight.org/ as a provider of safeguarding training and resources.
We commit to:
- Promoting a safer environment and culture
- Safely recruiting and supporting all those with any responsibility for children and vulnerable adults
- Responding promptly to every safeguarding concern or allegation
- Being sensitive and supportive for victims and survivors of abuse and others affected
- Being professional and safe for those who are the subjects of concerns or allegations of abuse, and others affected
- Responding to those who may pose a present risk
If you have any questions about safeguarding at Impact Gamers you can contact Adam at firstname.lastname@example.org or if that is not suitable and you have concerns contact the local authority or Police if you believe someone is in immediate danger or a crime has been committed..
IF YOU ARE CONCERNED THAT someone you know is at risk of, or is being, abused, or presents a risk to others, please report the matter to the Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police without delay.
Contact details for any concerns:
- If there is an immediate emergency, dial 999.
- If a child or adult is at immediate risk of significant harm, call the police on 101 or the Bradford Social Services team on 01274 435600 (for children), 01274 431077 (for adults), or 01274 431010 (the Out of Hours Emergency Duty Team for children and adults). (These numbers were correct on 9th August 2019 according to pages on Bradford Council’s web site at: https://www.bradford.gov.uk/children-young-people-and-families/safeguarding-children/safeguarding-children and https://www.bradford.gov.uk/adult-social-care/adult-abuse/report-adult-abuse . In the past Bradford Council has changed these numbers and its web site without notice, so we advise you to check the numbers for yourself if you don’t get through on the first attempt.)
