If you suspect or believe a child is suffering or is likely to suffer Significant Harm, including any form of mistreatment or abuse, you should report your concerns.
Members of the public can report their concerns by phone (see above).
Organisations should report their concerns by phone or by completing the Wolverhampton Safeguarding Children Board online Multi-Agency Referral Form (MARF). If you work for an organisation, and initially report a concern by phone, you must always complete the online MARF within 1 hour of any phone call preferably after having spoken with your organisation’s Named Safeguarding Children Lead.
