Sirona care & health provides children’s services across Bristol and South Gloucestershire. We work closely with other agencies to provide care and support where it is needed and to ensure that appropriate actions are taken in response to an allegation/incident of a child at risk.
Safeguarding children is everybody’s business and means promoting the welfare of children and protecting children from harm. Child protection means protecting each and every child from emotional, physical and sexual abuse or neglect. If you have a concern about the safety and wellbeing of a child, you must report it.
If you are worried or concerned that anyone under 18 (including an unborn baby) is being abused or neglected, please report it – the numbers are on the right of this page.
Abuse and neglect are forms of maltreatment of a child. Somebody may abuse a child by inflicting harm, or by failing to act to prevent harm.
Abuse can occur in a family, or in an institution or community setting. It may be from someone known to the child, or more rarely, by a stranger, for example, via the internet.
