Don’t let anything stop you from protecting a child
There are many reasons why adults don’t report their concerns when they’re worried about a child. But children need someone to speak up for them to help them.
Whether you’re the child’s parent, relative, family friend, neighbour or a professional, don’t let anything stop you from protecting a child.
If in doubt, report
Don’t wait until you’re certain. If you’re not sure, run it by one a counsellor or qualified expert.
A counsellor can assess the situation and advise you further. You might be wrong but you could be right and sharing your concerns can help to keep the child safe.
When you contact us, you do not need to say who you are or how you know the child of concern, if you do not wish to.
If you do provide information that may identify you, we may need to pass this on to children’s services. But we would always ask them not to share it with the alleged abuser or the family.
