In line with the changes to LADO and Early Help phone lines, from today, 6 January 2020 the Safeguarding Hub phone options will change as follows:

  • Option 1: for professionals with an immediate child protection concern (when it is believed that Section 47 threshold has been met and the child requires a response from Social Care today – please refer to the Multi Agency Threshold Guidance)
  • Option 2: if you are returning a call to a member of staff from the Safeguarding Hub
  • Option 3:  If you are calling regarding a child or young person who already has an allocated Social Worker (you will then have a choice of district team to be transferred to)
  • Option 4:  for any other safeguarding enquiry

There will still be a facility for you to leave a message if all our lines are busy and please note that they will aim to return your call within 30 minutes.
