What happens when you make a report?
There is a 4 step process when you make a report of child abuse:
Step 1: Listening
When you call your local children’s social care, your concern will be listened to and assessed.
Step 2: Information gathering
Information is usually gathered from many sources, and your report would form one part of a bigger picture
Step 3: Assessing
If concerns are raised about a child, a social worker will make an assessment and decide what support to provide.
Step 4: Deciding
It may be that the concerns are unfounded and that no further action is necessary, although all concerns are taken seriously.
Remember: if you think it, report it.
