Information Sharing

Information sharing is key to the Government’s goal of delivering better, more efficient public services that are co-ordinated around the needs of children, young people and families. It's essential to enable early intervention and preventative work, for safeguarding and promoting welfare, and for wider public protection.

Practitioners need to share information as part of their day-to-day practice, so it's important that they understand when, why and how they should share information. Practitioners must use their professional judgement when deciding whether or not, and what, to share.
