What to do if you have any concerns...

If you have any concerns... What should I do if I think a child is being abused?  

There are different types of abuse. These include:

  • Physical Abuse - such as hitting and shaking. 
  • Neglect - such as not being properly fed or medical needs not being met.
  • Sexual Abuse - including inappropriate sexual behaviour, language and assault.
  • Emotional Abuse - e.g. when a child is constantly criticised or humiliated.

Who has the responsibility to protect children? ....We all do. Whether we are: Family, Friends, Neighbours, members of the public or people who work with children and young people.

If you suspect a child is being abused, please call The Contact Centre on 01744 676767
