Safeguarding at risk children

There are different types of abuse that can place a child at risk:

  • Physical abuse such as punching, hitting or burning
  • Sexual abuse such as forcing a child to take part in any sexual activity
  • Emotional harm such as making a child feel unloved or useless or constantly putting them down
  • Neglect means not providing a child with enough for their basic needs eg enough food, clothes, medical care

If you think a child may be suffering or are concerned that a child has suffered harm, neglect or abuse in the past, please  contact us:
