Other concerns about a child

Other issues may not be dealt with by the council. For example, if you are in dispute about contact with a child relative you need to contact a family lawyer.

We've provided links to information and advice about a wide range of subjects which you may be concerned about, from bullying to crime, drugs and alcohol. Many of the organisations which offer advice also offer support services and helplines to report issues to.
