What To Do If...
|What should I do?|
Very few adults harm children deliberately and most often, when harm does happen, families need support, not punishment or the removal of their children.
Many myths exist, so for the record:
Birmingham social workers and other professionals get involved when parents may be unable to protect their child from harm and need some help. In some cases Birmingham Police Child Protection Units will investigate with social workers to help protect children and decide whether an offence has been committed against a child.
If you have concerns regarding a child please contact the office covering the area where the child lives (please see below).
