REPORT CHILD EXPLOITATION
IF YOU SUSPECT THAT A CHILD OR YOUNG PERSON IS IN DANGER OR AT IMMEDIATE RISK OF SIGNIFICANT HARM, YOU MUST CALL THE POLICE ON 999 AND MAKE A REPORT TO YOUR LOCAL CHILDREN’S SOCIAL CARE TEAM.
Your Local Safeguarding Children Board website should be your first port of call for all information, guidance and contacts if you’re a professional worried that a child or young person is being exploited.
You must ensure you report your concerns to your designated safeguarding lead/officer and follow your organisation’s own internal safeguarding policies and procedures which should be made readily available to you.
You can also report abuse with the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre run by the National Crime Agency if you suspect someone has been acting inappropriately towards a child online.
