As part of the Signs of Safety implementation, Social Work of Dumfries and Galloway Council has analysed how its receives referrals across social work services and decided to make some changes to process.
A multi-agency team has worked on this and they have developed a set of core questions. They have also agreed that all referrals will be made by telephone.
The communication available to download here – Social Work Referrals – explains this fully.
There are a small number of exceptions to this which have been discussed with partners and these exceptions will remain in place for the time being.
