Referrals to the reporter (share your concerns)

If it is the view of the child protection conference that the child is at risk of significant harm he/she must be referred to the reporter.

When a decision is made to refer a case to the reporter it is the responsibility of the co-ordinator, children services to ensure the referral is made. The child welfare and protection administrative team, will make the referral; this usually involves sending a copy of the form CP1 and child protection conference minutes within five working days. A letter of referral accompanies the paperwork.
