Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility. It is important to act fast if you suspect abuse as some signs of abuse can disappear quickly. You do not have to give your name and your conversation will be treated confidentially.  

If you are a parent and need one-to-one support; or if you are a carer or a professional and have concerns about a child or a young person you should get in contact with the Early Help team:
