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.
The case examples are also suitable for use as discussion materials to support training in information sharing. The eighth example illustrates the potential consequences of information not being shared effectively in a child protection case.
