There are two main agencies responsible for the investigation of child abuse in Guernsey and Alderney:

Committee for Health and Social Care;

Guernsey Police..

If you are worried about a child, you should contact the Multi-Agency Support Hub (MASH) by calling 723182.  An Emergency Duty Team is also available out of hours by calling the Hospital switchboard on 725241 and asking for the Emergency Duty Team to report a child protection emergency.

The Guernsey Police can be contacted by calling 725111 at any time of the day or night. The Public Protection Unit can be contacted by calling 725111 between 9am and 4.30pm.

If you have an immediate concern about a life being at risk or you believe a crime to be taking place - call 999.

The Islands Child Protection Committee (ICPC) has produced guidelines when there is a need to act to protect a child. The guidelines are to be followed by all people in Guernsey and Alderney who come into contact with children, through their work, whether they are paid or unpaid.

Details on the ICPC and the child protection guidelines can be found by using the link to their website below.
