The NSPCC helpline is staffed by trained professionals who can provide expert advice and support. They are there if you’re concerned about a child, if you’re a parent or carer looking for advice, or if you’re a professional in need of information and guidance.
Whatever your worry – call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000, or via email or through their website they can help. They also have advice about spotting the signs of abuse. You can call Monday to Friday 8am – 10pm or 9am – 6pm at the weekends, or email at any time. It’s free and you don’t have to say who you are.
