With Coronavirus (COVID-19) now affecting many areas of our services to the residents and businesses of Amber Valley, we are keen to keep you right up-to-date with the changes we are being forced to make. Read more about your council services.
If you believe that any child is in danger ring Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190 choosing the option for urgent child protection calls at any time or contact the police by ringing their call centre number 101 (24 hours).
If there are concerns about a child or young person's safety then a social worker must carry out an assessment under section 47 of the Children Act 1989 which includes seeing the child or young person.
Parents are normally asked for their consent before an assessment begins but a safeguarding assessment can take place even if parents don't agree to it.
