Information Sharing Aims

Information Sharing is vital for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

It is a major part of the Every Child Matters strategy and is key to the Common Assessment Framework. This is an assessment tool shared across services to avoid children and families having to tell and retell their stories to different practitioners.

Information Sharing is essential in order to:

  • Ensure children with additional needs get the services they require as early as possible
  • Avoid problems within families escalating to a point where it becomes difficult to make a difference
  • Protect children who are thought to be at risk of harm
