If someone is in danger or at risk

If a child you know is being abused, find out how to report possible child abuse.

If someone is in immediate danger, please call 999.

If you have a hearing or speech impairment, use our textphone service 18000 or text us on 999 if you’ve pre-registered with the emergencySMS service.

The Child Sex Offender Disclosure Scheme (CSODS) lets you formally ask the police whether someone who has contact with a child or children:

  • has a record for child sexual offences
  • poses a risk to the child or children for some other reason

It's not a law, but it is sometimes called 'Sarah's Law'.

Sarah's Law is not for you to report something to the police. Tell us about something you've seen or heard here or find out how to report possible child abuse here.
