Schools Safeguarding
Advice Helpline

Our helpline is available Monday – Friday 8.30am-4.30pm
Subscribing Schools Only

At Schools Safeguarding we recognise that safeguarding is hard! As a DSL you may be managing situations in school that are daunting and you may be faced with issues you have no experience of. You may need to just run something by someone with more expertise or discuss what support may be available for a child or family. Staff may need support, guidance or advice about the children they work with.

Calls will be dealt with confidentially.
Terms and conditions apply.

Here at Schools Safeguarding we can support, guide and advise you on all aspects of safeguarding in schools. The team at Schools Safeguarding are all dedicated, supportive and experienced safeguarding practitioners who will listen and respond sensitively and confidentially to all queries. Our School Advice Line is open throughout term time between 8.30am and 5pm providing advice and reassurance when you need it most. Calls will be answered or returned on the same working day.

Training and Support

“Thank you for all the support you have given us all at our school recently. Last week's training for our DSL team was wonderful along with your support via the Safeguarding Support Line. We just all wanted you to know how much we value you and what a positive difference you have made to so many.”
