If you think a child is in immediate danger please contact the police on 999.
If a child is not in immediate danger, but at risk of harm contact:
Staffordshire Childrens Advice and Support Service (SCAS) on:
0300 111 8007
- Monday to Thursday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

What happens when you call First Response?
Social workers follow up every report where they believe a child may be at risk of harm. They will talk to other people who know the child and may be able to provide a clearer picture. This includes teachers, health visitors and members of the child's family.
After this several things could happen:
- No further action will be taken
- Help and support will be offered to the family
- An investigation will take place
