Staffordshire Children's Advice and Support (SCAS)– 0300 111 8007

We are a county-wide telephone and web enquiry service for all children who:

  • Live in Staffordshire.
  • Are aged from pre-birth to 18 years old.
  • Do not currently have an allocated worker.

Have you got a serious concern about the safety of a child or young person up to the age of 18?

Do you think a child or young person is being harmed or is at risk of being harmed?

Are you worried that a child is living in circumstances where they are treated badly and not cared for properly?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions and you don’t believe that the child or young person is being supported by an allocated worker, please contact SCAS immediately.

If you believe the child to be at risk of immediate harm, this must be reported to the police on 999 or 101.
