Keeping children safe from harm is everybody’s business, during COVID-19 lots of children are not as visible to services like schools and health services. We need people to report any concerns they have about the welfare of child or young person so action can be taken to keep them safe.
During the current covid-19 crisis it is important that we all look out for each other, and with schools closed there are fewer people looking out for children. If you are concerned that a child or young person is at risk of abuse or neglect (harm) then you must report those concerns. Here’s how:
- Call the Cumbria Safeguarding Hub on 0333 240 1727
- Call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000
- If a child is at immediate risk of harm call 999.
