Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO)



In order to manage allegations against professionals, every Local Authority appoints a Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO). The LADO works within Children’s Services and should be alerted to all cases in which it is alleged that a person who works with children has:

  • behaved in a way that has harmed a child, or may have harmed a child 
  • possibly committed a criminal offence against or related to a child
  • behaved towards a child or children in a way that indicates they may pose a risk of harm to children 
  • behaved or may have behaved in a way that indicates they may not be suitable to work with children (Working Together to Safeguard Children 2018)

If you have any queries or concerns, you call 0207 361 2120 and ask to speak to the Duty Child Protection Adviser. Or Email [email protected].
