Child protection service
If you believe that any child is in danger ring Call Derbyshire tel: 01629 533190 choosing the option for urgent child protection calls at any time.
Or contact the police by ringing their call centre number tel: 101 (24 hours per day).
If there are concerns about a child or young person’s safety then a social worker must carry out an assessment under section 47 of the Children Act 1989 which includes seeing the child or young person.
Parents are normally asked for their consent before an assessment begins but a safeguarding assessment can take place even if parents don't agree to it.
