If you have concerns that a child is being harmed or living in circumstances that might be harmful in the future, it is important to report this to the police.

If you believe that a child or an adult is at immediate risk of harm and in need of protection then you should call the Police on 999 straight away. If you want advice from the Police and the child or adult is not in immediate need of protection, you can call the Police on the telephone number 101.
