Reporting Concerns

If you are concerned about a child's welfare or worried they are being abused, you can make a referral to Gloucestershire Children and Families Helpdesk:

Telephone: 01452 426565

The Multi-Agency Service Request Form can also be used to share information with your local office. More information on how to make a referral can be found here.

If you are unsure the Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board Procedures Manual will be able to help guide you or the Gloucestershire Levels of Intervention Guidance which tells you which types of services a family may need to get support.

Alternatively you can call ChildLine for advice  on 0800 1111 or email them by visiting
