Out of Hours Safeguarding Guidance

Do you need urgent help while you are not at college?

Are you worried about yourself, a friend or a relative?

Please use this guide as there are places that can help…

If you are feeling generally unwell, and this can include mental as well as physical health issues, and you cannot be treated by over the counter medicines at home then your first port of call should be your GP who will talk to you about what will be most helpful and can refer you to the appropriate source of support.

However, if it is an emergency, for example:

  • You or someone in your household are in immediate danger of harm
  • You or someone in your household are seriously ill

Then call the emergency services (dial 999 and ask for the police or ambulance service) or visit Accident and Emergency at your local hopsital or a Police Station if there is one nearby.

If it is not an emergency, but you require police presence, call 101

Metropolitan Police website

If you need to raise a concern about yourself or a child/young person under 18 or up to 25 with a learning difficulty or disability, contact social services:

Camden Council Adult Social Care Information & Access team 

Camden Children and Families Contact Service (formerly MASH)

If you require any other borough, please search the internet for social services with the name of the relevant borough.
