If you think a child might be suffering neglect or abuse, it can be difficult to know what to do. But your action is vital in making sure that child gets the help they need.
If you have any concerns about a child’s welfare, please contact Thurrock children’s social care duty team. They’re available 24 hours a day.
Whilst you may be concerned about involving social services, these teams do more than check up on childrens’ welfare. If a family is struggling, they can organise early help and support for the children and parents, before any problems become advanced and harder to solve.
