If you think someone is in immediate danger, the best thing to do is call 999 for the emergency services.

 

Tell us as much as you can

The more information you can give us about what’s happening and where it’s happening, the better. We encourage you to give your name, but we won’t tell anyone else you called unless you give us permission to do so. We take every report of abuse seriously and investigate all of them.

Abuse is a breach of someone’s rights, and may be a single act or happen repeatedly over a period of time. Abuse may be deliberate, but may also be caused by neglect or ignorance. It can happen anywhere, including your home, your child’s school, a residential or nursing home, at hospital, or in a public place. In many cases, abuse is a criminal offence.

Don't assume that someone else will take responsibility. You could help to save someone’s life. If you are worried, report it.
