Barnardo’s has a duty to report any harmful behaviour that might affect whether an individual is suitable and allowed to work with children and/or vulnerable/protected adults. 

The referral guidance below sets out when to refer and how to do this, having discussed it with the Local Safeguarding Lead and/or Head of Corporate Safeguarding in the first instance.

Referrals should be compiled by those working at an Assistant Director/Assistant Head of Business level or above, who will also be the point of contact for the Regulatory Body should any further information be required.
