Help from Your Local Authority

You can also call your local authority local’s child duty team.

The best way to find the contact details for the child duty team in your area is to Google “Child duty team” followed by the local authority where you live.

For example, search “Child duty team Caerphilly”, if you live in Caerphilly.

While local authorities tend to work normal office hours, Monday to Friday, most will have an out-of-hours emergency number for those situations where support is needed when the offices are closed.
