Report a Concern

Worried about yourself, a friend or a child or young person you know? 

For children living in the Hampshire Local Authority Area, the Interagency Referral Form should be used when making a referral. The Hampshire Safeguarding Children Partnership and Children’s Trust Thresholds Chart can help you to identify the risks and types of services a family may need.

You do not need to know everything about the child before contacting Children’s Services. If you are concerned, it is important that you talk to someone about this.

More information on how to make a referral can be found on the HIPS procedures website.

In an emergency, call 999.
