Safeguarding Children in Barnsley

If you're worried about a child, or are having some family difficulties, you should get some support. Knowing how to get help can make all the difference, especially to your child.

If the child is in danger

Call the police on 999 or (01142) 202020.

If the child is not at risk of immediate harm

If you're concerned about a child, but they're not in immediate danger, it's still important to share the information with us as soon as possible.

If your call is not urgent contact the Assessment Service on (01226) 772423. Our offices are open between Monday and Friday from 9am to 5pm.
