Child protection referral and assessment

The referral assessment service receives referrals about children and their families who may require an assessment. This is to decide how children's services and other professionals can best help to meet the needs of children and their families in Southwark.

We aim to:

  • keep families together within their communities
  • protect children and young people who may be at risk of harm
  • promote children's welfare within their families
  • work in partnership with parents and carers to promote better outcomes for children in Southwark

  • during core hours 9am to 5pm - phone 020 7525 1921
  • out of hours - phone 020 7525 5000
