Tell us if you are worried about a child

The county council has a duty to protect children and young people from harm caused by neglect or abuse. This includes investigating any allegations that a child might be being neglected or abused, and if necessary take appropriate action to protect the child.

Do you have a concern about a child being abused or neglected?

Call Care Connect on 0300 123 6720 (8am - 8pm) or out of hours 0300 123 6722 (8pm - 8am).

If you think a child is in immediate danger – don't delay call the police on 999.

The NSPCC website has advice about the signs, symptoms and effects of child abuse and neglect.

Do you have a concern about an adult that works with children?

If there are immediate safeguarding concerns to the child contact Children's Customer Care on 0300 123 6720 (8am - 8pm) or out of hours 0300 123 6722 (8pm - 8am).

If there are no immediate safeguarding concerns to the child inform senior management at the organisation where this person works.
