This section of our web site is aimed at Professionals, people who work with children and families. This part of the website is here to help and assist professionals in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

If you are a professional with a serious concern about a child or young person that needs immediate protection contact the Cumbria Safeguarding Hub, you will be asked to complete a single contact form. Where immediate protection is not required you will be expected to complete a single contact form, informed by an Early Help Assessment where possible, in the first instance.

Please see the LSCB Information Sharing Protocol this external link will open in a new window for good practice notes and details for sharing confidential information.
