Child safeguarding incident notification system

Notify the Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel if it’s known or suspected that a child has been abused or neglected.

Use this service if:

  • a looked-after child dies including where abuse or neglect is not known or suspected
  • a child dies or is seriously harmed in the local authority’s area
  • a child dies or is seriously harmed outside England while normally resident in the local authority’s area

Concerned members of public should follow this process to report child abuse

This service is for local authorities in England only.
