Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.
Members received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services relative to the Local Authorities Designated Officer (LADO) Annual Report, 2017 to 2018. The report detailed that the activity between April 2017 and March 2018 was low. There were four referrals, with three of the four meeting the threshold for the LADO.
Given the report sets out that the strategy in 2018/19 was to continue to raise awareness and increase engagement of agencies in training, has there been an increase in contacts and referrals to the LADO in the last 12 months?
Yes, there has been an increase in contacts and referrals. There have been six referrals since April 2018, compared to four referrals in 2017 and 2018.
RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
