As a parent, carer, neighbour or anyone in contact with children and families you may at times have concerns about the welfare of a child. These could be concerns about their development, appearance or behaviour which may indicate signs of abuse.

If you have concerns about a child you can and should seek advice from professionals. The Integrated Access and Referral Team (iART) will give advice and guidance about making referral and can be contacted on 0300 123 7 047. If you believe that a child or young person is at immediate risk, this should be reported without delay to the police service as a 999 emergency.

Please be assured that your referral will be treated in the strictest confidence. Remember, your call could mean the start of getting the right help to a family and may even save a child’s life.

Further information, guidance and resources can also be found on The Cheshire West and Cheshire Safeguarding Children Partnership website:
