Out Of Hours Safeguarding Contact

Emergency Safeguarding Team - Out of hours Emergency Safeguarding Support


The Safeguarding Team (EST) provides out of hours support for all safeguarding emergencies relating to football where a crisis has occurred outside of office hours that cannot wait until the next working day.


How to contact the Emergency Safeguarding Team

Please call - 07912 309565

The service is available outside of normal office hours:

  • Monday to Friday: 4:30pm to 7.00pm
  • Routine updates will be posted to provide the contact details for bank holidays.


The EST will respond to all calls as soon as possible but at certain times the worker on duty may be dealing with several matters. You are invited to leave a voicemail and/or text message and your call will be returned as soon as possible.


The EST’s response to referrals will be prioritised such as:

  • Where a child is at risk of immediate harm
  • Where a vulnerable adult is at risk of immediate harm


The team member on duty will make an assessment, on the telephone, of any immediate need or risk and then take appropriate action to ensure that an individual is safe until the next working day.


If the referral does not involve a child or vulnerable adult at risk of immediate harm, please email info@westridingfa.com with details of the referral. Your email will be responded to the next working day.
