Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL)


The role of the Designated Safeguarding Person was specified in the Children Act 2004 and was to ensure that every organisation had a “named person” for safeguarding children and young people. Prior to that, the role had frequently been known as the Child Protection Officer.


The Designated Safeguarding Person has a responsibility at both a strategic level within the organisation and on a day to day basis.


Key Aspects of the Designated Person role includes:


• Making sure all staff are aware how to raise safeguarding concerns

• Ensuring all staff understand the symptoms of child abuse and neglect

• Referring any concerns to social care

• Monitoring children who are the subject of child protection plans

• Maintaining accurate and secure child protection records
