Online forms: Notification of possible private fostering arrangement

Where there are child protection concerns about a child, a “children’s social care interagency referral form” needs to be completed instead of this notification-form.


The “Children’s Social Care Interagency Form” is a separate referral form and a child protection referral should first be made BY TELEPHONE AND WITHIN 48 HRS, FOLLOWED IN WRITING USING THE RELEVANT FORM (contact Referral and Assessment Team on 020 8359 4066). This “Notification of Possible Private Fostering Arrangement form should only be used when there is suspicion of an existing Private Fostering arrangement, and where there are no other child protection concerns.
