From time to time I am approached by parents, and sometimes children, who explain that they are worried about a child and their welfare, or perhaps something they have seen that makes them feel uncomfortable, but do not know what to do.
If you are worried, you can always tell us, but if you want to take immediate action there are people you can talk to:
Child Line – 0800 1111
Essex Social Care – 0845 603 7627
Out of Hours Social Care – 0845 606 1212
As always, if you have any worries of this nature, please do not suffer in silence. We are here to help.
