The new quick guide provides concise practical guidance on how to develop a positive culture that encourages open conversations about safeguarding. Registered managers of care homes may find this resource useful. 

The quick guide includes advice on:

 #LookCloser to spot and report signs of exploitation

Young people are being exploited and are losing hope, but it's not always obvious. Our #LookCloser campaign, developed in partnership with the National County Lines Co-ordination Centre and British Transport Police, encourages everyone to learn the signs of child exploitation and how to report it if worried. Please see the Children's Society website which has more information

Radicalisation is the process by which a person comes to support terrorism and extremist ideologies. If you are worried someone close to you is becoming radicalised act early and seek help. The sooner you reach out, the quicker the person you care about can be protected from being groomed and exploited by extremists. 

 Police forces across the country have specially trained Prevent officers who work with professionals in health, education, local authorities and charities, as well as faith and community groups to help vulnerable people move away from extremism. 

Friends and family are best placed to spot the signs, so trust your instincts and share your concerns in confidence.  They can help if you act early. You won't be wasting police time and you won’t ruin lives, but you might save them.

This guidance is to support health professionals to safely ask patients about Domestic Abuse (DA) in virtual settings for example: on the telephone, or online.
