Allegations against staff and volunteers who work with children (or those in a position of trust)

All local authorities should have a Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO), who provides advice and guidance to employers and voluntary organisations when allegations are made.


How to handle allegations

Allegations about staff or volunteers who work with children are overseen by the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO).

Follow the instructions on Wandsworth Council's website to find out more about the LADO's role and how to make a referral.
