Reporting someone you work with
If you’re concerned that someone in your organisation poses a risk to children, you must contact your most senior officer within your organisation, it’s the law.
You can 'whistleblow' and pass on information concerning wrongdoing to a third party, such as LADO or the NSPCC:
- if you feel that insufficient action is taken by your organisation’s leadership in response to reporting of concerns
- if you are worried that you will be penalised for reporting concerns
- if you continue to have concerns after reporting
All organisations should have a whistleblowing policy.
Anyone is welcome to contact the LADO team to discuss whistleblowing.
The NSPCC whistleblowing advice line provides advice and support.
