What to do if you are concerned about a child
We have a duty to protect children and young people from harm caused by neglect or abuse. This includes investigating any allegations that a child might be being neglected or abused, and if necessary take appropriate action to protect the child.
If you are concerned about a child, or about an adult who is working with a child call 0300 123 6720 or out of hours 0300 123 6722.
If you think a child is in immediate danger
