Children and Young People at Risk
What to do if you're worried about a child and think they may be a victim of neglect, abuse or cruelty?
Contact the Central Duty Desk. Phone: 0116 305 0005, fax: 0116 305 0011 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, use the Secure Agency Referral E-form to report your concerns. The E-form can be used by professionals and members of the public.
You do not need to know everything about the child and what is happening to be worried, or feel that everything is not right.
Outside of office hours
If you are calling out of hours (outside of 8:30am-5pm Monday to Thursday or 8:30am to 4:30pm on Fridays or bank holidays) then please call the Emergency Duty Team.
- Contact the Police on 101 (in an emergency always call 999).
- Talk to a teacher, health visitor or doctor who will be ready and willing to give you support, advice and information.
