Please note: The advice line does not replace an individual organisations safeguarding processes, these should be followed first. If following consultation more information comes to light or the situation changes, a professional can seek further clarity by calling the consultation line again.
Alternatively, if they feel that the response that have received does not meet the needs of the child/family or leaves a child at risk of harm, they can still make a referral in the usual way or escalate their concerns through their organisations safeguarding process.
The consultation line number is 03456 061499 and is open at the following times:
