Worried about a child?

What to do if you are concerned about a child's safety or welfare.

Due to the transformation of the former Northamptonshire Councils into the two new Unitaries of West Northants and North Northants, there has been some changes in regards to emails and phone numbers in use by the Partnership.

Documents including policy, procedures and guidance contained within the NSCP webiste are currently being updated to reflect the changes below.

Report a Concern

If it is an emergency and you think that a child may be in immediate danger please contact the emergency services directly by calling 999. If you need to contact us urgently during the evening, at night or at the weekend, please phone our out-of-hours team on 01604 626 938.

If you have a concern about a child or young person, you can contact MASH on the following number:

0300 126 7000

This is the MASH contact number for both West and North Northants. The MASH covers all of Northamptonshire but the contact line is hosted through West Northants Council so you will hear a West Northants message when you ring-keep on the line and choose Option 1 then Option 1 again and you will get through to the MASH.

You can also report a concern online via Northamptonshire Childrens Trust’s website:  

Referrals to the Designated Officers (formally LADO)
