Referrals from professionals and organisations outside of Wirral Council

If you are a professional, you need to use the online form to report concerns about a child or young person. You should also use this form if you wish to make a referral on behalf of an organisation.

Before you complete the form you will need to register for an online account. This will enable you to save a form and come back to it later. It will also ensure that the information you provide is kept secure.

Report a concern

What happens after you report a concern?

Your report will be viewed by a social worker, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm (excluding bank holidays) and responded to within 24 hours.

If you are a professional, you will be notified of the outcome in writing within five working days.

Should you have any immediate safeguarding concerns, please contact the Integrated Front Door immediately on 0151 606 2008 or if out of office hours on 0151 677 6557.

More information about the reporting process can be found on the Wirral Safeguarding Board website.
