The safeguarding Partners in North Tyneside, alongside our statutory partners would like to reinforce the need for all of us to be “extra aware”, of the potential risks to the children and young people in our area in these difficult times.

The usual ways in which children would be seen day to day, has for the moment vanished. This may leave them vulnerable to abuse or further risks.

Together with our safeguarding partners, we would like to provide the following message:

“Are you concerned about a child or family? If you see or hear something that worries you – say something!

Please call the Front Door on 0345 2000109 to report any child safeguarding concerns you may have.

In an emergency call 999.
