What to do if you are worried about a child

If you think that a child or young person is at risk from abuse or neglect, contact us immediately.

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

If you suspect ill treatment of a child or young person you can:

  • contact Children's Services on 020 8583 6600 option 2

It is important to act fast if you suspect abuse as some signs of abuse can disappear quickly.

If you are uncertain, you might find it helpful to discuss your worries with someone you know who works with children and families. This could be a teacher, school nurse, health visitor or social worker.

Our office is open Monday to Thursday 9am to 5pm, Friday 9am to 4.45pm
