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 safeguarding concern about a young person, current applicant to UCL or a current student at UCL which is not related to a UCL Widening Participation activity, please refer to the UCL Safeguarding Children and Adults at Risk Policy.

UCL Widening Participation safeguarding contacts

Any child protection concerns about UCL Widening Participation activities must be reported to a Widening Participation Designated Safeguarding Officer (DSO). If the concern could involve a potential allegation against a UCL staff member or a UCL student, it must be reported to a UCL HR safeguarding contact, with a Widening Participation DSO also copied in.
