For safeguarding support
Safeguarding children is everybody’s business. Safeguarding children means protecting children from physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect. It also means improving their life chances by supporting children to grow up to be confident, healthy and happy adults.
If you are concerned that a child is being harmed you must not keep these concerns to yourself. Contact the numbers above to ensure that you speak to a suitable person who can listen to and record your concerns, and then take the appropriate action. See Bradford Council’s website.
For domestic abuse support
Domestic abuse affects one in four women and one in six men. It is likely to get worse in situations such as pregnancy or when alcohol use is involved. We ask routinely when we have contact with you if this is something you are concerned about. We can provide information and support. See Bradford Council’s website for more information or support.
