New rules for local authorities on safeguarding.

New rules for local authorities on safeguarding.

From 29 June 2018 local authorities in England must notify the national Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel within 5 working days of becoming aware of a serious incident.

You should report incidents where the local authority knows or suspects that a child has been abused or neglected and:

  • the child dies (including suspected suicide) or is seriously harmed in the local authority’s area
  • while normally resident in the local authority’s area, the child dies or is seriously harmed outside England

You should also report the incident to the relevant local safeguarding children board (LSCB) at the same time as notifying the panel.
