Help a child
Are you concerned about the safety of a child?
Any agency or professional should make a notification of a child death if:
Complete the online eCDOP form to notify a child death has occurred.
Following notification of the death of a child, a coordinator will establish which agencies and professionals have been involved with the child or family, either prior to or at the time of death, by contacting the lead professionals in each agency.
The agency form will then be sent to the lead professional from each agency and to any professionals known to have been involved for completion as soon as possible.
Professionals receiving a reporting form for completion should retrieve the agency’s case records for the child or other family members and complete on the form any information known to them or their organisation. If information is not known, please note this on the form, rather than leaving it blank.
Please read the following useful guides:
