Safeguarding and supporting you
If you are suffering from bullying, violence or abuse of any kind, please don’t keep quiet, you can talk to one of our designated safeguarding officers
The Designated Safeguarding Officers are accessible during office hours. We don’t have a 24 hour service available but these other help lines are here for you to contact out of office hours.

Apprentice Wellbeing Advisors
You may, at some time, have a problem that is either work related or personal, which you feel you cannot discuss with your Supervisor/Career Development Adviser. It often helps to talk it through with someone else.
If you wish to discuss your problem in confidence, then our Apprentice Wellbeing Advisors, Ian and Naomi are always available. Ian and Naomi have experience of dealing with personal/wellbeing issues and can help with any guidance you may need.
Discussions will always be treated in the strictest confidence and if you ever need to speak to them, they can be contacted:
