Keeping safe

Safeguarding support

There are lots of Jersey agencies and other organisations available to support you and your family with any safeguarding concerns you may have.

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. If you're concerned about a neighbour, someone in your household or yourself then please do not hesitate to get in touch with the many helplines and advice centres available to you.

There is always someone available to offer advice or support when you need it.

'Precaution is better than cure' - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
