Worried about a child in your neighbourhood?

Worried about the safety of a child in you neighbourhood?

A campaign has been launched, with the support of the NSPCC, to encourage residents to share their concerns about potentially vulnerable children and young people in their community.

The campaign ‘Worried about a child in your neighbourhood?’ will raise awareness of how residents can play their part and highlight the ways they can contact the council or NSPCC about a child who may potentially be at risk.

If residents see any one or more of these signs, then they are urged to share their concerns:

  • Aggression, repeated shouting
  • Hearing hitting or things being broken
  • Children crying for long periods
  • Young children left on their own
  • Children looking dirty, not changing their clothes
  • Children looking withdrawn or anxious

If you are worried about the welfare of a child or young person then share your concerns confidentially here

Alternatively, you can contact the NSPCC via www.nspcc.org.uk or 0808 800 5000.
