What to do if you're worried a child is being abused

Children and young people often don't tell about abuse because they have been threatened into keeping silent or made to feel ashamed and guilty. They may be afraid of what will happen to their family, or that no-one will believe them.

Remember,

It is okay for children not to keep secrets about being abused.

Children and young people may not be believed when they talk about abuse. This does not mean they are lying. They should try to find someone who will believe them, or phone ChildLine.

You may be visiting this site just for general information. However, if you or anyone you know who is under 18 is being abused or neglected, please ring the following:
