Report a child at risk
It's everybody's job to make sure that children are protected from abuse.
On 7 November 2020, a law came into effect in Scotland that makes smacking a child an offence.
If you are worried that a child may be at risk of serious harm, please contact a professional to discuss your concerns:
- Phone Children's Services on 0131 271 3413 (office hours) or 0800 731 6969 (out of hours).
- Phone the Police on 101 or in an emergency 999.
- Speak to a member of staff at the child's school.
- Speak to any Health professional.
