Children and Young People
If you’ve got a problem or are worried about someone, it can be hard to know what to do. You don’t have to cope on your own. You have the right to grow up safe from people hurting you.

Child abuse is when you, or another child or young person, is being harmed or isn’t being looked after properly.
