Safeguarding

Your life. Your choice. Your voice.

“Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility”

Safeguarding is at the heart of what we do and fundamental to our existence as a charity. We are all ambassadors for Swindon Advocacy Movement (SAM) and for safeguarding.

Swindon Advocacy Movement is part of the Swindon Safeguarding Partnership.

If a child or adult is in immediate danger, in need of medical attention or if a crime has been committed, contact the Emergency Services (Police and/or ambulance Service).
