Designated Person Network

Northumberland designated person for safeguarding, child concerns, making a referral, child protection


Due to a lack of resources all activity related to the Designated Person Network is currently suspended. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

The role of the Designated Person (DP) for Child Protection is crucial to voluntary and community groups to protect children in their care. When staff or volunteers express concerns about a child, the DP has to make key decisions about when to make a referral, when to discuss these concerns with parents, how to support the child and the staff through the process of referral.

Using a combination of monthly e bulletins, a facebook group and bi annual meetings VoiCeS provides the designated person in organisations with updates, information, the opportunity to ask questions and share best practice.
