Guidelines for a Young Person to Report Possible Abuse

Guidelines for a Young Person to Report Possible Abuse

What can you do if you are being harmed, abused or are afraid of someone you know?

If you are being harmed or abused by someone you know, it could be hard for you to tell.  However, it is very important that you do tell so that you can get help. This could be a parent, another family member, a teacher, or someone involved in your life who will listen.

In Blackrock Athletic Club you may wish to discuss your concerns or seek advice from a Coach, your Children’s Officer or another trusted person in your Club.
