Keeping Children Safe is Everyone's Responsibility

 

Most children enjoy generally safe and happy childhood experiences within their own family but unfortunately for some, this is not the case.

 

We all have a duty to protect children and this page will help you to access support if you are concerned that a child or young person is at risk of harm.

Reporting a Concern

We all have a duty to protect children and young people from harm. If you have any concerns about a child or young person it is always best to share them.

 

If you think a child is in immediate danger, contact the police on 999.

 

Staffordshire Police:
Telephone: 101 and ask for M.A.S.H. (Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub)
Outside of MASH hours, report to the Area Communications Room

In an emergency always call 999

 

If a child is not in immediate danger but at risk of harm,

contact Staffordshire County Council's First Response Service. 

 

Staffordshire County Council's First Response Service:

Phone: 0800 1313 126

Open: Monday - Thursday 8:30am - 5:00pm and Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm
 
Emergency Duty Service:

(Out of Hours Service)
Telephone: 0345 604 2886

Mobile: 07815 492613

 

What will happen next?

Social workers will follow up every report where they believe a child may be at risk of harm. They will talk to other people who know the child and may be able to provide a clearer picture. This includes teachers, health visitors and members of the child's family.

After this several things could happen:

  • No further action will be taken
  • Help and support will be offered to the family
  • An investigation will take place
