Safeguarding children is everybody’s responsibility. It is important to act fast if you suspect abuse as some signs of abuse can disappear quickly.

If you feel urgent action is needed contact the police on 999.

If you are worried that a child or young person is at immediate risk, please contact the 'Assessment and Access Team' immediately on 020 7361 3013.

Out of Hours
(5pm – 9am and weekends): Please contact the 'Emergency Duty Team'  on 020 7373 2227), or email: [email protected].
