Complex Early Help and Safeguarding hub

The Complex Early Help and Safeguarding hub is Rochdale’s main front door or main point of access to children’s social care. All concerns regarding a child or young person suffering or at risk of significant harm should be reported.


How it works

The Complex Early Help and Safeguarding hub team is made up of a variety of services including the Police, Children’s Social Care and Sunrise as well as Early Help and Health, all of whom contribute to the decision making regarding individual cases.

Where a referral is not seen as meeting children’s social care thresholds for a service the referral will be passed to the Early Help managers to consider whether alternative support can be offered and by whom.
