The system will require you to create an account.  Once you submit the report, you will receive an email confirmation that your report was received.  Keep this email for your documentation

After submitting your report to ChildLine contact your immediate supervisor to make them aware that a report was made.

After making a report, it is recommended that you make a courtesy call to your local Children & Youth agency.
