The Keeping Adults Safe in Shropshire Board’s Information Sharing Protocol and Practice Guidance is now in place and available on the Multi-Agency Procedures pages of the Keeping Adults Safe in Shropshire Board Website: http://www.keepingadultssafeinshropshire.org.uk/multi-agency-procedures.

The Protocol outlines the expected standards of confidentiality and disclosure in relation to adult safeguarding. It applies to all members of the Keeping Adults Safe in Shropshire Board and others working with adults with care and support needs in Shropshire.

The document also provides practice guidance to front line staff and managers; and explains how we share information between agencies when there are concerns that an adult with care and support needs may be at risk of or experiencing abuse or neglect.

It is important that all staff working with adults with care and support needs are aware of and apply these expected standards and practice guidance. We therefore ask that you share the document with staff throughout relevant agencies.
