What should I do if I suspect an athlete is being abused or neglected?
Among the Special Olympics movement’s highest priorities is the well-being of Special Olympics athletes. Allegations of abuse or neglect are very serious and must be dealt with promptly. If an allegation of abuse or neglect is brought to your attention it must be immediately reported to the appropriate authorities.
- For reports involving minors, you must contact the NH Department of Child, Youth, and Family Services at (800) 894-5533.
- For reports involving individuals over the age of 18, contact the NH Division of Elderly and Adult Services at (800) 322-9191.
When reporting the allegation, note the name and contact information of the person reporting the information to you as well as the name and contact information of the person you have given the information to.
