This protocol is under review, and has not been accepted.

We are currently gathering feedback and editing this protocol, and there may be errors or bad wording. Please only use this protocol with caution, and if other organisations have definitive protocol, use that instead.

Please see #protocols on Slack to discuss this protocol further.

This page is specific to QueerCare Youth Folk (QCYF) which is the autonomous group inside QueerCare made up of people aged 13-19.

If anyone (young person or adult) within QueerCare has a safeguarding concern, they can speak to any of the Safeguarding Leads or Deputies (whoever they feel most comfortable talking to).

The Safeguarding Team can be contacted by DMing them on Slack or on Signal, or via email. Their contact information can be found in a pinned message in the Slack channel #general-announcements.

Alternatively, the person raising the concern can fill in this form.

The Safeguarding leads and deputy leads will then follow the How Safeguarding Leads and Deputy Leads Respond To Safeguarding Concerns Protocol.
