I am an adult and I am concerned about a child
If you are concerned about the treatment of a child outside of school, you can do one of these things:
- Report it to the school's Designated Safeguarding Officer (Miss Holmes) by phoning the school on 01234 741653 or emailing email@example.com.
- Contact Bedford Borough Integrated Front Door (previously MASH) on 01234 718700 during the office hours: Monday to Thursday (8:45am to 5:20pm) and Friday (8:45am to 4:20pm).
- If you urgently need help outside office hours, you can contact Social Care Emergency Duty Team on 0300 300 8123.
- Ring Bedfordshire Police on 101, or in an emergency dial 999.
