For Children

If you are worried about a child or young person (under 18 years) and the information you have suggests that a child is at immediate risk of being harmed, you should tell the police without delay. This is an emergency - use the emergency number 999.

If you are worried about a child but do not think that there is a risk of immediate harm, your first contact should if possible be the Parish Safeguarding Officer.

Subject to that, you can contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Team (see below) for advice,

but you should also contact Bexley Council’s Children Services Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub.


The contact details are:

Telephone: Daytime hours (Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm) 020 3045 5440.

Out of hours (5pm to 9am Monday to Friday and 24 hour cover at weekends) 020 8303 7777 or 020 8303 7171.

Further information can be found on the Bexley Council website:
