If you’re a friend, relative or neighbour of the child, we ask that you contact our First Response Children's Duty Team on 0116 305 0005 where you will be able to speak to a Social Worker about your worries. The Social Worker will discuss these with you and take as much information as possible.
You will be able to remain anonymous if you wish and a Social Worker will discuss this with you.
Talk to a teacher, health visitor or doctor if you’re worried about a child but you’re not sure if they’re being abused or neglected.
