We are committed to ensuring the safety of all young people in the youth custody estate. If any member of staff at Oakhill Secure Training Centre has concerns about possible abuse they can report this via the Safeguarding Team, which works in co-operation with relevant statutory safeguarding partners. Referrals include not only incidents which occurred at the centre, but also any abuse relating to events outside of custody which a young person has felt able to disclose. In the period 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022, 247 referrals were submitted to the Safeguarding Team in relation to alleged abuse, and all referrals are then appropriately investigated. The Director is informed of all referrals and is briefed on each incident.
