Local Authority Designated Officers
Arrangements for Handling Allegations
Please follow this link for the Arrangements for Managing Allegations of Abuse Against People Who Work With Children or Those Who Are in A Position of Trust procedure.
It is essential that any allegation of abuse made against a person who works with children and young people including those who work in a voluntary capacity are dealt with fairly, quickly, and consistently, in a way that provides effective protection for the child, and at the same time supports the person who is the subject of the allegation. The framework for managing allegations is set out in statutory guidance contained in Working Together to Safeguard Children 2015.
This policy applies to allegations against local authority foster carers and local authority residential workers.
