The greater the level of perceived risk, the more urgent the action should be.
This means that referrers must share: All known details of the child, including name, date of birth, family members and address; Any known aliases of adults in family/household; Why exactly the case is being referred, e.g. the child is in need of protection, the child may be at risk of Significant Harm.
