The safety and wellbeing of all children and young people attending UCL Widening Participation activities is the responsibility of all UCL staff and students. Everyone working on these activities must follow our child protection and safeguarding policy.
Our child protection documents
Reporting a child protection concern
If you have a child protection concern in relation to a UCL Widening Participation activity you must report it.
Please download the Concern or Incident Reporting Form and complete it in as much detail as you can. Then send the report to the appropriate safeguarding contacts listed at the bottom of the form.
If you have a child protection concern related to another activity at UCL which is not a UCL Widening Participation activity, please refer to the UCL HR policy on Working with Vulnerable Groups, and use the referral form available in section 8.
If you have a safeguarding concern about a current applicant to UCL or a current student at UCL which is not related to a UCL Widening Participation activity, please refer to the Children and Vulnerable Adults Safeguarding policy for Applicants and Current Students.
UCL Widening Participation safeguarding contacts
