Portal for referring concerns about a child

From 26 March 2018, professionals need to make referrals to the Front Door for Children's services by completing a MARF on the new Liquid Logic portal

When a child is at immediate risk of significant harm, please continue to contact the Front Door on 01452 426565 (Option 1).


High Needs consultation: Have you had your say?

On the 19 July, we discovered a technical fault in the online survey. This affected the questions about the proposals for primary schools. If you have completed the survey previously and you were not able to see the primary school questions, you don't need to complete the whole survey. You need only complete the questions in the Primary school section as we will already have all of your other responses.

Complete the consultation

We have extended the consultation by six weeks. The consultation will now close on 14 September 2018. We apologise for any inconvenience.

    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.
