SAFEGUARDING

It is important to raise a safeguarding concern about a child if you are worried that they are at risk or in danger. Find out more below.

What to do if you are worried about a child

If a child is in immediate danger or left alone, you should contact the police or call an ambulance on 999. There are numerous ways to report concerns about a child. Information on how to report both emergency and non-emergency abuse and neglect of a child is provided here. 
 

 

PLEASE NOTE FOR EMERGENCIES: If a child is in immediate danger or left alone, you should contact the police or call an ambulance on 999.
