What Is Child Abuse?

All children have the right to be looked after properly, kept safe and protected from harm.

Child abuse is the ill treatment or neglect of a child by an adult or young person resulting in the child suffering significant harm. Abuse of a child can be sexual, physical, emotional or neglect. Child abuse and neglect occurs to children of both sexes, of all ages, and in all cultures and social classes.

Things can go wrong for all sorts of reasons in any kind of family at any time, which sometimes means that children suffer as a result

Don't assume someone else will be doing something about it.

Children can not always ask for help themselves.

Do not delay reporting your concerns.

Whom should I contact?

Do I have to give my name?

If you give your name it will be treated confidentially. The most important thing is to tell Doncaster Council or the Police about the children you are worried about. We take all calls about child abuse seriously whether you give your name or not.

Then tell us about it;
