Sexual abuse

Emergency assistance

The police must be informed in any case of sexual abuse of a child or a young person. In an urgent situation, ring the police emergency number; at other times, ring the non-urgent police number.
The police will assist with any emergency and register your report.

Children and Young People’s Services within Social Services

Rättvik Social Services employs a group of social workers to work on issues relating to children and young people.
If you have the slightest concern that a child or young person is being or has been sexually abused or is at risk of being sexually abused, ring the Social Services contact line to speak to a social worker.

Social workers in Children and Young People’s Services will investigate whether the child or young person is in immediate need of protection and whether Social Services may need to intervene.

The child or young person can also be put in contact with other agencies, such as BUP (Children’s and Young Person’s Psychiatric Services), and medical care.
