Concerned about a child?
Tell us about a child or young person
Reporting safeguarding concerns
You can tell us about a child, young person or parent/carer that needs support in some way by contacting our Single Point of Access Team (SPA). You may be concerned about the child's developmental needs, issues that the parent/carer is experiencing, or you may suspect a child is being neglected or subjected to physical, sexual, or emotional abuse.
- call us between 8:00am - 5:15pm, Monday - Thursday, and Friday between 8:00am - 5:00pm 0208 547 5008
- or call the out of hours duty team (evenings and weekends)
- or call 999 if you think a child is in immediate danger
You will be asked for your name, address, details of the child and the concerns you have. These are to help us make further enquiries and to contact you again if necessary. Your details will be treated confidentially and will not be disclosed to members of the family in question without your consent.
You can also tell us about a child, young person or parent/carer that needs support in some way by completing our online child safeguarding referral form (provided by the London Borough of Richmond as part of our joint services provided by Achieving for Children).
In an emergency
If you think a child is in immediate danger you should call 999.
If you need to speak to someone urgently outside of office hours, please call the Duty Social Worker on 020 8770 5000.
