Introduction of LADO Online Referral Form

21 March 2023

Dear colleagues,

Nottinghamshire’s Managing Allegations Service was launched in November 2020 and has allowed us to better manage the concerns and allegations against professionals and volunteers working with children. Over time we have seen an increase in contact with the LADO Allegations Officers and we are introducing a LADO Online Referral Form from Monday 3 April 2023 to help us manage this more effectively. From this date referrers phoning in will be directed to the Online Form and no referrals will be taken over the phone.

We hope this form will allow you to consider the criteria for making a referral to LADO and gather the required information needed to submit a full referral, as much as it will allow the LADO Allegations Officers to process your contacts efficiently.

The link for LADO Online Form will appear on the NSCP website from 3 April 2023.

Thank you to those colleagues who trialled the form for us - they assured us the form is straightforward to complete. We trust this will have assisted in addressing any glitches before we go live however should you experience any difficulties please do let us know using the email address below and title your email Online Form issues.

LADO email :

We look forward to continuing to work with you to ensure a safe children’s workforce in Nottinghamshire.

Kind Regards,

Hazel McKibbin
