Berkshire LSCBs Data and Information Sharing

Data and Information Sharing Agreement for Agencies Working with Children and Young People April 2017

Sharing information is key to the goal of delivering better, more efficient public services that are coordinated around the needs of the individual, families and communities.  It is essential to enable early intervention and preventative work, for safeguarding and promoting welfare of children and young people and for wider public protection.  Information sharing is a vital element of improving outcomes for all.

This agreement provides a framework for agencies to share information about children, young people and families who are receiving services or for whom they have a concern and to support information sharing to develop services to support children, young people and families.  It sets out the principles for sharing information and gives the legal context in which we share information.
