Worried about yourself, a friend or a child or young person you know?
- Anyone who has concerns about a child's welfare can make a referral to Children's social care. Referrals can come from the child themselves, professionals such as teachers, the police, GPs and health visitors as well as family members and members of the public.
- For children living in the Hampshire Local Authority Area, the Interagency Referral Form should be used when making a referral. The Hampshire Safeguarding Children Board and Children’s Trust Thresholds Chart can help you to identify the risks and types of services a family may need.
- You do not need to know everything about the child before contacting Children’s Services. If you are concerned, it is important that you talk to someone about this.
- More information on how to make a referral can be found on the 4LSCB procedures website.
In an emergency, call 999.
