Reporting Concerns

If you think a child is at risk of harm it is important to voice your concerns to someone who can help.


Whether it is emotional, physical or sexual; ABUSE is ABUSE!

There are several ways to help...


Contact your local authority child protection team

If you are not a professional involved with the child or family, you do not have to give your name and your conversation will be treated confidentially.

If you work or volunteer with children and families, your organisation should have procedures in place to report concerns about a child. For example, hospitals have designated nurses and doctors who deal with child protection issues; and all schools must have a designated child protection teacher.


Contact the NSPCC

The NSPCC Whistleblowing Advice Line is for anyone with child protection concerns in the workplace. The helpline provides support and advice to those who feel unable to get a child protection issue addressed by their employer. It can be contacted anonymously on 0800 028 0285.
