WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT A CHILD
If you think that a child or young person under the age of 18 years old, who lives in the borough, is being abused or neglected, contact the MASH Team using the contact details below. Outside of office hours and at weekends and public holidays contact the 'out of hours contact' service on 030 0303 8671. If you are seriously concerned about a child's immediate safety, dial 999.
Not all concerns raised about a child will automatically lead to a child protection investigation. Less serious concerns may lead to a more general assessment of need and the provision of services or the offer of advice and information.
