LADO – Local authorities should have designated a particular officer or team of officers to be involved in the management and oversight of allegations against people that work with children. This role is known as the LADO (Local Authority Designated Officer).

Their role is to give advice and guidance to employers and voluntary organisations; liaise with the police and other agencies, and monitor the progress of cases to ensure that they are dealt with as quickly as possible consistent with a thorough and fair process.

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 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 s/he is posed to be a risk of harm to children.
