You may be concerned about a child or young person. You may or may not know them, or even their name. Child protection is everyone's responsibility. Abuse can take many different forms such as:
- Sexual abuse;
- physical abuse; or
- emotional abuse.
Don't assume that someone else will take responsibility and make that telephone call. You could help to save a child's life.
Follow the links on the left hand side of this page for useful information and support if you are at all concerned about the safety and welfare of a young person.
