Child Protection

Wherever possible children should be supported to grow and achieve within their own families and community. Children and young people also have a right to be protected from harm.


Report an Issue

If you think a child is in immediate danger of being harmed, please contact the Police on 999. If you think a child is at risk, not being looked after properly, or you have concerns about his or her welfare, please contact:

  • 01446 725202 / Out of hours: 029 20 788570

If you are contacting us on behalf of someone, we will need to ask you some questions about that person, such as:

  • The reasons you are worried
  • Home address and age or date of birth of the child
  • Names, addresses and ages or dates of birth of the child’s family members
  • Names of professionals involved with the family, such as their doctor or school
  • Whether you feel there is a safety risk to anyone visiting the home of the child

You do not need to know everything about that person to contact us. We aim to protect your identity whether you ask us to do so or not. Sometimes this is not possible due to the information you provide or because a case needs to go to court.


If for any reason you do not feel comfortable talking to us, please tell someone else who knows the family, such as a teacher, a doctor, a nurse or a health visitor.


Bwrdd Lleol Diogelu Plant Caerdydd a’r Fro

Mae’r Bwrdd Lleol Diogelu Plant (BLlDP) yn Bartneriaeth sy’n gyfrifol am weithio ynghyd i oruchwylio diogelwch a lles plant a phobl ifanc ar hyd a lled Caerdydd a Bro Morgannwg.


Mae gan bawb gyfrifoldeb i ddiogelu plant.  Gall pob plentyn gael ei frifo, fod mewn perygl o gael ei niweidio neu ei gam-drin, beth bynnag fo’i oedran, rhyw, crefydd neu ethnigrwydd.  Mae deddfwriaeth diogelu a chanllawiau’r llywodraeth yn dweud bod diogelu yn golygu:


  • Amddiffyn plant rhag cael eu cam-drin
  • Atal unrhyw niwed i iechyd neu ddatblygiad plant
  • Sicrhau bod plant yn cael eu magu mewn amgylchedd sy’n cynnig gofal diogel ac effeithiol
