Safeguarding Children:

Worried About A Child?

Are you worried about a Blackpool child?

Safeguarding all children from harm is everybody's responsibility. Most children generally enjoy safe and happy childhood experiences within their own family, but unfortunately for some this is not the case. During difficult family times everyone has a responsibility to protect children from future harm. Good child care begins even before a child is born.


If the child is at immediate risk, please call the police on 999
