If you wish to contact outside of office hours, please telephone the Duty Social Worker on: 0345 0533116

We will discuss your concerns with you and ask you for as much detail as possible. We will investigate your concerns and if necessary make a plan to protect the child. This may involve adding the child's name to the Child Protection Register. We will respect your right to confidentiality.
