The Brighton and Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership is calling on all the city’s residents to help protect vulnerable children and their families through these difficult times.
If you see or hear something that worries you and think a child may be at risk or in need of support – please:
- call the council’s Front Door for Families on 01273 290400, or
- email your concerns to FrontDoorForFamilies@brighton-hove.gov.uk, or
- complete an online referral.
The chair of the council’s children, young people and skills committee, Councillor John Allcock, said: “In these difficult times it’s even more important that as a city we work together to ensure that children are safe.
“Families are under extra pressure at the moment because of Coronavirus and the restrictions that have been imposed.
“Many children and young people are feeling isolated, worried and vulnerable.
“Keeping children safe is everyone’s responsibility. On behalf of the city’s Safeguarding Children Partnership I’m asking all our residents to keep their eyes and ears open and look out for children who may need help.
“If in doubt, please make that call to us – and help us to help children who may be in need of safeguarding and support."
The Brighton and Hove Safeguarding Children Partnership brings together the council, Sussex Police and NHS professionals to help keep children in the city safe.
