Child Protection

The information in this leaflet is for parents and carers who may be involved in Child Protection Meetings. Everyone involved in Child Protection Meetings is there to do what is best for the child, to help parents and carers in looking after and protecting them. We want to involve parents and carers as much as possible in all the decisions made about their children.

What to do if you are worried about a child

If you think a child is being abused or mistreated or you have concerns about a child’s well-being please contact one of the numbers shown on this page.

Your phone call could help to safeguard a child who may be at risk.

If the situation is immediately dangerous for the child then ring 999 and ask for the Police.

If the child is not in immediate danger contact:
