Report a concern about a child (safeguarding and abuse)

What happens next

When you contact us, we will:

  • Listen: Your concern will be listened to carefully and assessed.
  • Gather information: From many sources as your report forms one part of a bigger picture.
  • Assess: If concerns are raised about a child, a social worker will make an assessment and decide what support to provide.
  • Decide: It may be that the concerns are unfounded and that no further action is necessary, although all concerns are taken seriously.
