Sharing information is vital for early intervention, to ensure that children and young people get the services they require. It is also essential to protect children and young people from suffering harm, abuse or neglect, and to prevent them from offending.
A framework of information sharing principles has been agreed and training and elearning is available to support practitioners. The Department for Education has publications available to download to support practitioners in their work. Families and children will normally be given their Privacy Notice when they begin receiving a service from the council.
