Management of Allegations
Tania Brown is the Safeguarding Advisor (Local Authority Designated Officer) for Tameside. It is her duty to oversee investigations into allegations of child abuse and inappropriate behaviour by people working with children and young people.
The LADO works closely with employers to offer advice and guidance on the management of allegations. Where there is cause to suspect that a child is suffering or is likely to suffer significant harm, or that a criminal offence might have taken place, the LADO will liaise with Children’s Social Care and/or the Police to ensure that that information sharing is appropriately co-ordinated.
The LADO chairs inter-agency Professional Abuse Strategy Meetings on behalf of Tameside Safeguarding Children Board and is available for advice and consultation.
The LADO (Tania Brown) is based at the Union Street building in Hyde and can be contacted on:
