What should I do if I am worried about a child?
One of our main priorities at Southampton City Council is that children and young people in Southampton get a good start in life and can go on to fulfil their potential.
If you are concerned about a child or young person, it is important to take action. There are several options available so we have provided more information to help you decide what to do next. This information is relevant for both professionals and members of the public.
When it’s not an emergency situation but you are worried that a child may be at risk of abuse, harm or neglect, please contact us. Find out more about these risks and how to report a concern. You can also contact us straight away on 023 8083 3004.
