Children's LADO referral form

If the child is at immediate risk of harm, do not use this form and instead contact the emergency services on 999 or contact the Single Point of Access team.

Use this form to submit an allegation to the Children’s LADO about an adult who works with children.

If you have already completed a Statement of Referral (SOR) then you do not need to fill out this form as well. SPoA will pass on the details to us.

We aim to respond within one working day.
