All I want to know is i can do a check on this man
Something is telling me to. I'm not over reacting just very concerned for my daughter

This probably tells you what you need to know. It is from one particular local authority but the same is available throughout the country.

Or, if it’s a violence issue this

Although I don’t know whether the latter has been rolled out yet.

Not a legal issue but remember that whatever you come up with may not be well received by your daughter.

Can I clarify anything else for you?

I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
