Some children will put on a happy face, or hide how they’re feeling, even when they are being neglected or abused at home, or by someone else.
If you’re a young person who is being harmed or not looked after properly, or if you’re worried about a friend, it’s very important to ask for some help.
It can be really scary to speak up, but try and talk to an adult you trust. That might be a teacher, another member of your family, a friend’s mum or dad, or a youth worker.
You can also contact Childline – it’s a free and confidential helpline.
If you’re frightened, you can always ask a friend to help you – it’s always better to #speakup
