Haringey Safeguarding Updates

The new LADO Guidance (PDF, 1.56MB) is now available.

LADO stands for Local Authority Designated Officer, and the LADO guidance is a procedure for managing allegations of abuse against people who work with children.

It is different from a S47 Child Protection Investigation, and is designed to deal separately with the professional aspect of an allegation in a neutral and sensitive way.

This includes assessing the immediate and continued risk to children in the work setting, and identifying support for professionals against whom an allegation is made.

For more information, please visit the allegations against staff page.
