Managing Allegations Against Professionals Who Work With Children


This briefing will provide an overview of managing allegations against professionals who work with children. The session, delivered by the Local Authority Designated Officers (LADOs) will provide a guide to the referral criteria where there are concerns about professionals. They will explain the role of the LADO and the process undertaken following a referral. The session will also identify the responsibilities of agencies in identifying and responding to these concerns and allegations.

The session aims to develop knowledge and confidence in those who may need to deal with allegations about staff that they employ or manage in their organisations. This briefing is therefore particularly relevant to managers, senior leaders and those in a safeguarding lead role. 
This one-hour briefing will be delivered by the Local Authority Designated Officers (LADOs).
