What is Safeguarding?

Safeguarding is any action taken to protect young people and vulnerable adults from maltreatment. To report a safeguarding concern is to respond to allegations or suspicions regarding a young person's or vulnerable adult's safety or welfare.

Who should fill in this form?

It should be completed by any volunteer, staff member at a partner organisation, parent/guardian, or young person who has a safeguarding concern that directly relates to a Raspberry Pi Foundation programme, activity, or event.

Anyone involved in a volunteer-led activity (e.g. Code Club/CoderDojo/Raspberry Jam) should first report any concerns directly to the member of management at the host venue (e.g. school) who is responsible for investigating safeguarding concerns, before then completing this form and sending it to the appropriate safeguarding lead at the Foundation.

Host venue staff as well as people involved in Foundation-led activities and/or events should also use this form to report their concerns to the appropriate safeguarding lead at the Foundation.

Please submit this form to your designated safeguarding lead as soon as possible following the emergence of any safeguarding concern.

Any personal data that you share with us will be stored safely, in compliance with our data protection policy.
