The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. The GDPR forms part of the data protection regime in the UK, together with the new Data Protection Act 2018.
Sharing information at the right time, with the right people, is key to keeping children and young people safe from harm. All professionals who work with children and families must understand the purpose of information sharing in order to safeguard and promote children’s welfare.
The NTSCP developed a Memorandum of Understanding (Information Sharing Protocol guidance) with our key partner agencies. This enables them to understanding of what information can be shared within the relevant legal frameworks and we ask that all our Board Partners ensure they have information sharing protocols in place, which include how to obtain and consent to share.
