Making a referral

You should only make a referral once you have spoken to the Duty and Assessment Team. You need to use the referral form which can be downloaded from the East Sussex Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) website.

Reporting allegations against staff or volunteers working with children

The organisation’s safeguarding lead needs to contact the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) as soon as possible to discuss any allegation against a staff member or volunteer working with children.  In the case of a very serious or urgent matter, the Police or the Children’s Services Duty and Assessment Team must be contacted in the first instance.   

LADO: Paul Startup, telephone 01323 466606 or 07825 782793, email paul.startup@eastsussex.gov.uk
