Keeping children and young people safe

What to do if you are concerned about a child or young person: in an emergency, call 999. If your concern is not an emergency, call Surrey County Council's Children's service directly. Tel: 0300 200 1006 

You can also call the Emergency Duty Team (for both adults and children) out of hours on 01483 517 898.
