You don't see children as much because of the Coronavirus lockdown, but please keep a caring eye out for them.
The crisis is making families more stressed and vulnerable, which means some children are potentially more at risk of neglect or physical, mental or even sexual abuse.
If you're worried about a child, please call The Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees Children’s Hub on 01429 284284 / 01642 130080 or out of office hours call 01642 524552. In an emergency please contact the Police on 101 or 999.
