Safeguarding is Everyone's Responsibility

Safeguarding children and protecting them from harm is everyone's responsibility.  Everyone who comes into contact with children and families has a role to play. (Working Together to Safeguard Children, 2015)

Coming Soon… Gloucestershire Children’s Services Portal for completing the MARF

More information will be provided over the coming weeks about the new online portal for professionals making a request for service to the Children's Helpdesk when they have concerns about a child.

    Do you have concerns about a child?

    If you think that a child or young person is at immediate risk of significant harm contact the Children’s Helpdesk on 01452 426565. Otherwise, you can have a discussion with a Community Social Worker to discuss your concerns and decide the most appropriate response to meet the needs of the child and their family.

    Revised Levels of Intervention Guidance

    Levels of Intervention act as a guide to professional decision making and are there to ensure that children, young people and families are able to access the right support to improve life chances and keep children and young people safe. They should not be seen as a barrier but a clear continuum across the levels of need and appropriate support to meet that need.
