Managing Allegations

Local Area Designated Officers (LADO) provide advice and guidance to employers and voluntary organisations that have concerns about a person working or volunteering with children and young people who may have behaved inappropriately or if information has been received that may constitute an allegation.

If you consider a LADO referral is needed:

  • Gather the relevant information: the name, date of birth and home address of the ADULT connected to the allegation/incident; the child/children's details (LADO procedures cannot begin without this information)

  • It is advisable that you initially discuss the details with the Designated Child Protection Officer (Mrs J Dentith) and record/log the details in your relevant records

  • They will also need your name, your organisation's address and the role you have in your organisation

  • Once you have this information, call Exeter (01392) 384964
