Worried about a child?

IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE SAFETY OR WELFARE OF YOUR CHILD,
OR A CHILD YOU KNOW, YOU SHOULD ACT WITHOUT DELAY.

 

YOU CAN ASK FOR ADVICE, OR REPORT YOUR CONCERN TO:

 

KSCMP (Kent Safeguarding Children Multi-Agency Partnership ) on 03000 41 11 11 or email social.services@kent.gov.uk

 

Police Telephone: 101 (non-emergency telephone number) 999 for emergencies

 

NSPCC Child Protection Helpline Telephone: 0808 800 5000

 

Many people worry that their suspicions might be wrong, or that they will be interfering unnecessarily. If you wish, you can telephone for advice without identifying the child. If the conversation confirms that you are right to be concerned you can then give the child’s details. You will be asked for your name and address too, but the agencies will take anonymous calls, so if you really do not want to say who you are, you do not have to.

 

Remember, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
