Help & Advice Numbers

If you are concerned about a child or young person it is important to speak to a professional as soon as possible. This might be a Head Teacher, Health Visitor, Youth Worker etc for advice and support. They will know how to respond to concerns about a child’s wellbeing and should advise you of the next steps.

If you are concerned that a child may be at risk of harm from abuse or neglect then please contact one of our Family Teams. If you are worried that a child is at immediate risk of harm then phone the Police without delay.
