Many of us have been acting as volunteers in the current COVID crisis and helping neighbours and residents in our own communities. This app, described below, may act as a useful resource if you every have safeguarding concerns regarding members of your local community.
The NHS Safeguarding app has been developed to act as a comprehensive resource for healthcare professionals, carers and citizens. It provides 24-hour, mobile access on up to date legislation and guidance across the safeguarding life course.
The app also provides information on how to report a safeguarding concern and even has a directory of safeguarding contacts for every local authority in England, searchable by region.
It is accessed by over 300 users daily and has had over 100,000 downloads. It can be accessed via Apple iOS, Google Play or it can be downloaded by visiting your device’s appropriate app store and searching for ‘NHS Safeguarding’.
If you have any questions or amendments that need to be noted on the NHS Safeguarding App please the Safeguarding Team: email@example.com
