This document contains eight case examples focusing on different aspects of information sharing. These eight case examples support the cross-Government guidance document Information Sharing: Practitioners’ Guide by illustrating for practitioners the practical application of the guidance. The case examples cover a range of situations of relevance to everyone who work with children and young people, whether they are employed or volunteers, working in the public, private or voluntary sectors.

This is a case narrative detailing the story of a young child Charlene and her mother Jane, who has a history of inappropriate (sometimes violent) relationships and drug misuse. There are a number of concerns about Charlene who is eventually removed from Jane’s care. This case scenario can be used to illustrate a number of issues, including drug misuse, partnership work, good practice in investigation, and assessment in training contexts.
