Learn when and how to share information with vulnerable members of the public about people in their life for safeguarding reasons

This multi-agency training is aimed at front-line practitioners working with children or adults at risk, including social workers, safeguarding leads, health workers, housing staff, teachers and those working in child care.

Course aims:

  • When and how to share information with vulnerable members of the public about people in their life for safeguarding reasons without the consent of the subject.
  • What the Data Protection Act says about sharing information without consent
  • Clare’s Law (DVDS) and Sarah’s Law (CSODS) – the Right to Ask and the Right to Know
  • Where to find guidance from the government about when and how to share this information appropriately.
  • The protections that exist for you if you share such information without consent in an appropriate manner.
  • As this is an information session no level is assigned to it.

Trainers: Police sergeants Jim Dineen and Dee Hutchinson, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary
