The Shropshire policy on safeguarding is to be found in the link on the RHS, including a referral form to use when reporting concerns.

Raising a Safeguarding Concern

If you have identified an adult with care and supports needs who is experiencing abuse or neglect or at risk of abuse or neglect, your first priority is with them, to make them safe (including reporting to the Police if immediate action is required). If you are happy that the abuse will not continue, there is no need to raise a safeguarding concern with the local authority but you may want to make a record of the rationale for your decision and what action you have taken (see appendix 4).

If you employ someone (or have a volunteer) who has harmed an adult with care and care and support needs or poses a risk of abuse or neglect (current or historic) and you are likely to be using your disciplinary policy, you must raise a safeguarding concern.

To raise a concern (see appendix 3) you must telephone Shropshire Council’s First Point of Contact Team (FPoC) on 0345 678 9021. Their opening hours are Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm, and Friday 9am to 4pm. In urgent circumstances outside these hours, please phone the Emergency Social Work Duty Team on 0345 678 9040.
