LiquidLogic Children's Portal is now live!

The LiquidLogic Children's Portal for raising concerns about a child is now live. Guidance is available here.

From 26 March 2018, professionals will need to make referrals to the Front Door for Children's services by completing a MARF on the new Liquid Logic portal. The current process for making a referral involves completion of a MARF (Multi Agency Request Form) using a word document.  The new portal brings a range of benefits, including:

  • Less duplication and quicker decision making process;
  • Increased availability as the MARF form will be available 24/7 via laptop, PC, tablet or smartphone;
  • Reduced errors as information will be sent directly to the Children’s Services Front Door; and
  • Security – end to end encryption through the portal and an audit trails of all referrals

When a child is at immediate risk of significant harm, the Front Door should be contacted on 01452 426565 (Option 1).

    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.
