If you wish to contact the BFG SB about another matter (not to report concerns about a child) please go to Contact Us.
lf you suspect or believe a child is suffering or is likely to suffer Significant Harm, including any form of mistreatment or abuse – or if you are concerned about your own behaviour and need advice or support should contact the Central Referral Team or the Service Police.
If a child is in immediate danger or left alone, you should contact the police or call an Ambulance.
The police operator will need to take your name, address and details of what has happened. This will take time, but it is important to get all of the information from you so that we can send the right people to you if necessary.
