If you are concerned about a child

Don't be afraid to speak up. Trust your instincts - if something doesn't look or feel right, there will be a good reason for this. Don't do nothing.


If a child is at serious risk or a crime against a child has been committed, this must be reported. Call 111 and ask for Police.


To discuss or report your concerns: Call Oranga Tamariki - Ministry for Children free on 0508 FAMILY (0508 326 459) or contact your local police station. 

To find help and support for families in your community visit:





The Child Abuse Prevention Parent Helpline is the only nationwide parenting helpline in NZ that is available seven days a week.  They have no time limit on calls and their friendly telephone support workers are able to offer not only immediate help but also information, referral, and on-going support to those affected by child abuse, concerned about the welfare of a child or needing family or parenting support.
