Concerns for a child

Sometimes you might suspect that a child is at risk of harm or neglect. In other cases, you may know of a family who could benefit from some additional support and help to look after a child better. If you have concerns:-

  • Share them with a trusted source such as a Teacher or Police Officer.
  • Report a concern through the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub by calling 0151 443 2600
  • Contact Merseyside Police on 101 – for emergencies dial 999.

Further information about the reporting options and the support agencies is available here.
