Concerned about someone?

How can I report abuse?

We know it can be difficult to report abuse, but if you don’t help, who will? You can report safeguarding concerns by phone or online at anytime.

In an emergency dial 999, but for other calls to the police please ring 101.

If you prefer to report a safeguarding concern by phone ring our First Point of Contact team on 0345 678 9021 Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm, and Friday 9am to 4pm.

Outside these hours, please phone the Emergency Social Work Duty Team on 0345 678 9040.

Please note, we'll respond to online enquiries within ten working days. However, in an emergency please contact us using the numbers on this page.
