If you’re worried that a child or young person is at risk or is being abused contact the children’s social care team at their local council.
You’ll be asked for your details, but you can choose not to share them.
Call 999 if the child is at immediate risk, or call the police on 101 if you think a crime has been committed.
What happens when you report it
The person who answers your call will decide what to do. For example, they might:
- gather more information
- ask a social worker to look into it
- contact the police
They won’t be able to tell you what happens next, because of confidentiality.
