Worried about a child?
If you believe that a child or young person is at IMMEDIATE risk, you should treat this as an emergency and call the academy, or call 999 to report your concerns to the Police.
Most children enjoy generally happy childhood experiences within their own family. Unfortunately for some this is not the case. During difficult family times, everyone who knows the child must do the best they can to protect them from future harm.
Anyone who is concerned about a child’s safety or wellbeing can contact the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).
