Safeguarding and Business Listings

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a client that manages 21 children's homes across the UK. 


Safeguarding requirements mean that the locations of these children's homes and their contact details are to be restricted and kept out of the public domain.  This falls in with the compliance requirements from the regulator, Ofsted.


We have noticed that addresses for some of these homes have been appearing in search results via a number of sites and directories. One had also had a Google Business listing created by a third party. I've managed to remove this listing, however we would like to know if there's a way of getting these blocked from being created again? And if there is anything else that can be done in terms of safeguarding.


Thank you.
