Concerned about a child who may have been abused or exploited?

As caring adults we are aware of so much that affects the lives of our children and we want to keep them as safe as possible. If we notice changes that might mean that something is wrong we need to know where we can voice our concerns straight away, rather than feeling that we don’t know what to do. There is help available and steps need not be taken alone. We can talk through your concerns, and help you take any necessary next steps.

We are here to help

We are ready to help you. We offer anonymous and confidential help and support and can talk you through your worries and provide support. So please, pick up the phone and call the anonymous and confidential Stop It Now! helpline on 0808 1000 900 for advice, support and information.

If you’re not ready to talk to someone, you can use our live chat or send us a secure message.

You can also find more information on how to keep children safe on our Parents Protect website.

We can also give you help and support if you’re worried about the behaviour of an adult you know or about the behaviour of a child or young person.
