Do You Need Advice or Support?
All children and young people have the right to be safe in all environments, for example, at home, school, on the street, and on the internet. It is the role of parents, carers, teachers, learning mentors, doctors, nurses, social workers, police officers, faith leaders and sports coaches to ensure that you are safe from harm.
If something is worrying you or making you scared and you're not sure if it is abuse, it's important to talk to someone you trust.
If you’ve got a problem or are worried about someone, such as a brother or sister, parent or a friend, it can be hard to know what to do. But you don’t have to cope on your own. As a child or young person, you have the right to grow up safe from people hurting you or failing to ensure that you are cared for. All adults have a responsibility to protect you.
