Reporting a concern

Get in touch if you think a child or young person may be:

  • unsafe or in danger of harm
  • suffering from ill-treatment, abuse or neglect
  • Or you’re not sure if you should be concerned, and want advice, or just to talk things through.

A social worker will work out how urgent this is, and the best thing to do next.  

What we'll need to know when you get in touch:

  • what you're worried about
  • details of any incidents, including dates
  • details about the child or young person and their family, such as names and addresses
  • if the family, child or young person has previously been involved with us or the Police.
