Safeguarding children, young people (including those looked after) and adults 


Our Safeguarding Team provides services focussed on the needs of children and young people under the age of 18 years and adults.

Our team of doctors and nurses have expert knowledge, skills and experience in the care of vulnerable children and young people and vulnerable adults.  We work closely with local health and council partners including the Croydon Safeguarding Children Board and the Safeguarding Adults Board

A key component of our work is collaborating and liaising with other agencies. Information sharing is important and there are times when there is a need to share information with police, social services, and the voluntary sector in order to protect the vulnerable.

If you need advice about a safeguarding issue or you require information regarding training, please call our main telephone:  020 3668 1300 and ask for the safeguarding team.  

If you have urgent concerns relating to a child (including those looked after) or adult or you wish to speak with a social worker, please contact:
