The NSPCC is urging professionals working with young people to call their free Helpline if they are ever uncertain about a child's welfare.

You can call the Helpline on 0808 800 5000, or email:, in confidence any time of day or night. It is important for any organisation working regularly with children and young people to have a clear child protection procedure to follow if a child discloses abuse but it may not always feel that simple. The Helpline's advisors understand that staff or volunteers want to be sure they are acting in the best interests of the child and that it is not always easy to assess a child safeguarding issue. The Helpline's trained child protection advisors can provide advice about the situation and talk you through the steps you need to take to safeguard the child's welfare. Over the next three years the charity plans to grow the Helpline and its ChildLine service through the Child's Voice Appeal, so that it can protect more children.
