Where to turn for child help


Explain to the child where they should call if anything happens to them. Tell him the main phone numbers of the city’s rescue services – 01, 02 and 03, and 112 – for calls from a mobile phone. Tell us, in which cases you need to immediately dial the corresponding number. If the child, for example, already attends school independently and walks on the street, you should buy him a cell phone. Be sure to enter his phone directory your mobile phone numbers, including home and service numbers.


Make sure the child knows where your family’s next of kin and close friends live, who can provide assistance to the child if required. Their phones should also be in his handbook. Introduce your child to your flatmates in the stairwell.


Tell the child where the nearest hospitals, police departments, as well as safe crowded places — supermarkets, squares, etc. If there is no opportunity to use the phone, the child should go there immediately


Tell the child the phone of the Anonymous Help and Support Center, where he can safely call if he is in a nasty situation, but does not want to speak about it to parents. This is especially important if a child, for example, is subjected to frequent taunts and pressure from peers in school and on the street, has complexes, etc.

Be aware of where and what help children are provided in your city. Find out which medical facilities are suitable for treating particular diseases, whether there are psychological care centers in the district.
