Worried about a Child?
Across both the City of London and the London Borough of Hackney, safeguarding partners, relevant agencies and other organisations work together to identify children in need or at risk of abuse with the aim of providing support as soon as problems emerge. To help them do this, the CHSCP has approved and published guidance for all practitioners working with children and young people that covers the process for early help and the criteria when a case should be referred to Children’s Social Care. If you are worried about a child, follow the guidance set out in either The City of London Thresholds of Need or The Hackney Child Wellbeing Framework. If you think a child is at risk of immediate harm, please contact the police by calling 999
