Central Referral Unit

Location: Northern Ireland

The Public Protection Arrangements for Northern Ireland have changed from 1 April 2015. The Child Abuse Investigation Units (CAIUs) are now co-terminous with the Health and Social Care Trust boundaries. To make contact with the PSNI about suspected child abuse contact the Central Referral Unit (CRU) based in Belfast and they will take the details. The case will then be allocated to the Child Abuse Investigation Unit in whose area the alleged offence occurred. When you are referring to the CRU ensure that you request that the investigating officer contact you directly. This will then prompt the CRU staff member to include your request for contact in the onward referral to the appropriate Child Abuse Investigation Unit.
