Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility. 

What is important to remember is that acting on your concerns and seeking help or advice is hardly ever a bad idea. People sometimes hesitate because they think "What if I'm wrong?". The response to that is simply to ask, "What if you're right?" If you are unsure - seek advice.
