Contact NSPCC helpline online Report your concerns about a child

If you have concerns about a child's safety and wellbeing, including a child in your family, you can use this form to tell the NSPCC helpline. One of our advisors will read it within 24 hours and decide what action needs to be taken.

If you're using a mobile device/tablet and are experiencing difficulties completing this form, please try using a computer, or call us on 0808 800 5000, or email to report your concern.

What we need from you

Please say as much as you can about the situation – it will help us take the right action. Tell us the facts that you know, as well as any concerns you have about that child.

Can I remain anonymous?

You can contact the Helpline anonymously if you do not want to tell us who you are. However, it's really helpful to have your name and contact details, as we may need to contact you for more information in order to protect the child or children that you are concerned about.

It may also help to protect a child if you give permission for us to share those details with the Police or a social worker, or sometimes another agency where necessary, so that they can seek further information from you if they need to.

If you are willing to provide your details, but do not want us to share them with other agencies, please select the 'no' option on the form below.

As a UK-based charity we’re unable to guarantee that prompt safeguarding action would be taken about concerns reported to the helpline for children who live in, or are nationals of other countries. If you're worried about a child outside the UK, please contact local welfare agencies or police. 

If you are unsure or concerned about completing the form please call the helpline on 0808 800 5000.
