Use our helplines to find out more information and advice on child neglect
If you've witnessed an assault or think a child is in immediate danger, contact the police on 999 or call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000 without delay.
If you're worried about a child, but unsure, contact the NSPCC helpline for advice. You can discuss your concerns with our trained counsellors who will assess the information you give them and can take action on your behalf, if necessary. Alternatively, you can contact your local police or children's services

We're a children's charity who work directly with over 250,000 children, young people, parents and carers. We run more than 650 services across the UK and tackle issues such as child neglect and abuse.
The most disadvantaged children rarely suffer on just one front. We work with these children to ensure that they are loved, valued and listened to. With them we fight childhood poverty, harm and neglect. Our network of programmes includes drop-in services for runaways, children's centres and support for young carers. We support children who are refugees from violence, and we give those in care a voice.
