Who can report
We welcome referrals from anyone as long as you get the consent of the person you're trying to help.
If you work for a public authority, you're required by law to ask a person for their consent and refer them to a Greater Manchester council if they give it to you. This is known as a Public Duty to Refer.
Public authorities include:
- The Prison Service
- Youth Offending Services
- Secure Training Centres
- Probation and community rehabilitation companies
- JobCentre Plus
- Social services departments, such as adult social care and children's social services
- Emergency health services
