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.

Spot Abuse

You may be concerned about a child or young person. You may or may not know them, or even their name. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. Abuse can take many forms, such as neglect, sexual abuse, physical abuse and even emotional abuse.

Take Responsibility

Don’t assume that someone else will take responsibility and make that phone call. You could help to save a child’s life. If you are worried, report it.
