Safeguarding Contact CardSafeguarding Contact Card

The BC Early Years Service has produced a pocket-sized Safeguarding Contact Card for use by all professionals within the childcare workforce. The card contains useful information and guidance on what to do if you're concerned about a child or member of staff/volunteer working with children and where to go should you require further advice. We have made the card available for you to print as many copies as you require for yourself or your team.

Printable version

Copies should be printed on both sides of a single piece of paper directly from the printable version above. Cards should be trimmed to size and folded in a concertina style. Printing onto thick paper rather than card is advisable as they may otherwise be difficult to fold.
