Child Safety Services contact information
If you suspect a child is experiencing harm, contact Child Safety Services to report suspected child abuse.
You can contact Child Safety Services through:
- a Regional Intake Service
- a Child Safety Service Centre
- the Child Safety After Hours Service Centre.
The contact point that you choose will depend upon the service you need, and the time you make contact with Child Safety Services.
A Regional Intake Service is the contact point when you have concerns for a child and suspect that a child is being harmed or may be at risk of experiencing harm in the near future.
Trained child protection workers talk to you about your concerns for the child. They will record information you provide and gather other information that may be helpful to assess the situation. The worker will then decide the best way of responding to the information you have provided.
When you contact a Regional Intake Service to report your concerns, your details will be confidential and your identity, if provided, will be protected by law.
The Regional Intake Service receives information from community members, government and non-government agencies during business hours from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
