Worried about a child

Every child and young person has the right to be safe.

All reports or enquiries concerning the welfare or safety of a child must go straight to the Bridge Partnership, call: 0161 603 4500 or complete the online referral form on the worried about a child page.

The Bridge Partnership is available Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. If you need to speak to someone outside of these times, please contact the Emergency Duty Team (EDT) on 0161 794 8888.

If a child is in immediate danger of being harmed or is home alone, call the police on 999.
