Safeguarding

Community support for vulnerable children and young people is particularly important during lockdown when most children are not in the usual routine of school or nursery. We can all play a vital role to protect children who may be at risk of harm by keeping our ears and eyes open for signs that something is wrong. If you hear or see something that isn’t right or if your gut tells you that a child might be at risk of harm, please take action.

Dumfries and Galloway children’s and adult social work services are always available even during lockdown.

Call 030 33 33 3001 and ask for duty if you know or believe a child is at risk, if there is an immediate risk of harm call Police Scotland on 999, or 101 for advice, for concerns out of hours call 01387 273660.
