Information sharing advice for safeguarding practitioners

The Department for Education (DfE) has published advice to support practitioners in the decisions they take to share information, which reduces the risk of harm to children and young people and promotes their well-being. This advice has been updated to reflect the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018, and it supersedes the Information sharing: advice for practitioners providing safeguarding services (2015)’
