If you are a child or young person under 18 years old, this area of the website is for you.

All children and young people have the right to be protected from harm.  Safeguarding is about the action taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.  It means that children are protected from:

  • Abuse and maltreatment
  • Preventing harm to children's health or development  
  • Ensuring children grow up in safe, effective care
  • Taking action to ensure that all children have the best outcomes 

If you are concerned about yourself or someone else, you can call a helpline which is just for children and young people.  Childline is a helpline which is free, private and confidential and it doesn't show up on the phone bill.  Or you can contact them online.  

Childline - 0800 1111 or click here to access online.

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, Childline provides you with an option of contacting using British Sign Language (BSL) or through a counsellor online, anytime.  Click here to find out more.  

If English isn't your first language, you can contact Childline online and use an Art Box to write or draw how you feel - click here to find out more.
