CSPoA Postcode Validation

Children’s Single Point of Access Multi-Agency Notification Form

This form is used for contacting the Reading Children’s Single Point of Access (CSPoA) when you have concerns about a child or young person.

Due to security constraints, you will not be able to save this form and progress later. Please ensure you have as much of the detail needed (if known) to hand before starting. Details of information needed are on the main CSPoA page on our website.

You must obtain parental/carer consent to complete the online form, unless doing so puts the child/young person at risk of harm.

If you are unsure about whether to make a referral, please refer to the Reading Threshold of Need

If you are worried about an immediate risk of significant harm to a child, call 999. It is essential that you also share your concerns with us by telephone and follow this up by completing this form within 24 hours.

CSPoA daytime hours: (Mon to Friday) 9am to 5pm call 0118 937 3641

For urgent enquires outside of these hours please contact the Emergency Duty Team on 01344 786 543

First, please check the postcode of the child/young person below, to make sure it is in the Reading borough.

If it is out of borough, please contact the child/young person’s next nearest local authority. You can find out where that is using this national postcode checker: central government postcode checker, which would provide more info about which Local Authority this postcode falls within?
