Child Protection

By law, all Islanders have to call Child Protection when they think a child is being abused or neglected by a parent.

You must call Child Protection if you think:

  • A child is being physically, sexually or emotionally hurt by a parent;
  • A child has been hurt and a parent did not prevent it but could have;
  • A child is living in a home where there is domestic violence;
  • A child is being neglected by their parent.

If you think a child is unsafe with their parent, you must call Child Protection.
