The Children’s Single Point of Access is how you raise a concern about a child (pre-birth to 18 years old) in Reading. This includes safeguarding and child protection.

Having a Single Point of Access allows us to make timely, informed, evidence based decisions to ensure a child’s safety. This has been developed in partnership with services across Reading to create a simple communications channel for everyone.

What is the Children’s Single Point of Access?
The Children’s Single Point of Access is a single point of contact for all early help and children’s social care services, including disabled children. The line is open to all practitioners and the general public.
