Safeguarding and Child Protection Procedures – who to contact

You may be concerned about a child or young person.  You may or may not know them, or even their name.  Child protection is everyone’s responsibility.  Abuse can take many different forms such as:

  • neglect;
  • sexual abuse;
  • physical abuse; or
  • emotional abuse.
