Reporting a Concern

We all have a duty to protect children and young people from harm. If you have any concerns about a child or young person it is always best to share them.

 

If you think a child is in immediate danger, contact the police on 999.

 

If a child is not in immediate danger but at risk of harm, contact Staffordshire County Council's First Response Service on:

Phone: 0800 1313 126

Open: Monday - Thursday 8:30am - 5:00pm and Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm
Emergency Duty Service: (Out of Hours Service)
Telephone: 0345 604 2886

Mobile: 07815 492613

 

What happen when you call First Response?

Social workers follow up every report where they believe a child may be at risk of harm. They will talk to other people who know the child and may be able to provide a clearer picture. This includes teachers, health visitors and members of the child's family.

After this several things could happen:

  • No further action will be taken
  • Help and support will be offered to the family
  • An investigation will take place
