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

  • 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.
