While it is the responsibility of child protection agencies such
as Social Work and Police to investigate whether or not abuse has
taken place, it is EVERYONE’S responsibility to report concerns
about a child.
Reporting to Line Manager
If you have identified concerns about a child you should record
these concerns and report them immediately to the appropriate line
Passing on Concerns to Social
If you or a member of staff are worried about a child's safety or
welfare, a referral should be made to Social Work. In the first
instance, this should be made by telephone.
This phone call should be followed up in writing within 24
