Make a safeguarding referral


Before making a referral

Please read the Thresholds Document to decide whether your concerns require a referral to Children’s Social Care.

Consider whether the needs of the person can be met by services or professionals already involved before making a referral.

Discuss your concerns with your agency’s safeguarding lead or your line manager.
