Slough Safeguarding Children

Staying indoors because of coronovirus is difficult for everyone; but is it making you scared?

You are not alone. There is help for you even in the current difficult  situation we are all in, help is still there for you.

Contact CHILDLINE who will also help and advise you.

Abuse can be:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Sexual
  • Neglect
  • Exploitation

Sometimes parents argue a lot and this can be really upsetting and if there is violence or parents are abusive of each other this can really effect how you feel, and you may not know how to deal with these feelings.

Parents taking  illegal drugs or drinking too much alcohol  don't always realise the effect this is having on their children. Even though parents may love their children, sometimes they cannot pay attention to the child's needs. 

If something is worrying you or making you scared, it is important to try  get help and at least talk about it to someone.. If you don't know who to turn to, or want to speak to someone that doesn't know you, there are people that can help:

If you are in danger call the police on 999
