Children in care and care leavers placed in Southwark by other local authorities

Notifications, consultations and services offered in Southwark

Local authorities placing children in care and/or care leavers in Southwark are required to complete a Child notification form (pdf, 61kb). Send the form to Southwark Council at Qaucp.Admin@southwark.gcsx.gov.uk.

A child notification form (pdf, 61kb) also needs to be completed where a local authority needs to notify Southwark Council of a change of address for the child or young person or where a child or young person is leaving Southwark.

Where a local authority is planning to place a child as a "distant" placement, the local authority is required to consult Southwark Council about this proposed placement. Details of the placement, including the intended address of the placement, should be emailed to Qaucp.Admin@southwark.gcsx.gov.uk.

Where children in care and care leavers are placed in Southwark by other local authorities, the council and local health partners can provide a range of resources and facilities that can be accessed. Please contact  Qaucp.Admin@southwark.gcsx.gov.uk for guidance for other local authorities.
