Worried about a child?
Abuse is one of the very worst things that can ever happen to a child but it's not always easy to pick up the signs, and a child might not even know that what's happening is wrong.
It's vital to know what to do if a child ever reveals that they are being abused. By being prepared, and knowing what help is available, you can make a real difference to a child's safety and well-being.
