Report a child at risk


If you have a concern about a child please contact Careline on 233 3700 or Merseyside Police on 709 6010 (999 in an emergency).


When is a child at risk?

You should contact us if you feel that:

  • A child needs protection – if you feel that a child is suffering harm, neglect or abuse, we can investigate and act to protect the child.

  • A family is under stress – we can offer support and advice and help families access support from other services.

  • A child is seriously ill or disabled – we can arrange an assessment of the child’s and family’s needs and provide support.
