Don't wait until you're certain if you are worried about a child. If you have any concerns, contact our free helpline service to speak to an NSPCC advisor 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We will listen to your concerns, offer advice and support and can take action on your behalf if a child is in danger.
You don’t have to tell us who you are if you don’t want to, or you can ask us not to share your name or contact with the police or social services.

All communications will be recorded and we keep records for 15 years.
