Do you think you or your friend is being harmed by an adult who works with you?

 

Most adults who work with children want to do the best for them and can be trusted.

However sometimes adults who work with children may harm them by:

  • Physically harming them, such as hitting them
  • Involving them in sexual activity
  • Making them feel unhappy.

 

If that happens to you or a friend remember it is not your fault and you and your friend can get help to stop it.  Often you will not be sure about what is happening so it is important you have the opportunity to talk to someone you trust and feel comfortable with because that can help you sort things out.  You can talk about it to:

 

  • Your parents  or another member of your family
  • A teacher from school
  • A social worker
  • The LADO ( Local Authority Designated Officer) who   is responsible for  

managing allegations/concerns  against adults who work with  children

  • A police officer  
  • The NSPCC helpline   0808 800 5000
  • Child line 0800 1111
  • Children’s legal centre

 

Remember you and your friends do not have to put up with bad behaviour from adults and your worries will be taken seriously
