The Family Approach Protocol has been commissioned by the 4 Safeguarding Children Boards (4LSCBs) and 4 Safeguarding Adult Boards (4LSABs) in Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton. The protocol was commissioned in response to findings from a range of reviews across all Board’s which highlight the need for professionals to work effectively together to achieve better outcomes for adults, children and their families across all areas.
The information in this toolkit has been jointly developed by the 4LSCBs and 4LSABs. It is free to access and available to all practitioners from any agency / organisation working with children, adults with care and support needs, and their families across the areas.

4LSAB Multi-Agency Hoarding Guidance has now been published. The document sets out a framework for collaborative multi-agency working across Hampshire using a ‘person centred solution’ based model to support those demonstrating hoarding behaviours.
The purpose of this guidance is to support providers, practitioners, and other professionals to identify when to raise concerns regarding poor self care or lack of care for living conditions, identify agencies who can provide support and set out what they may expect by way of a response and encourage and support defensible decision making in accordance with our duty of care. This guidance should be read in conjunction with the Hampshire 4LSAB Multi-Agency Safeguarding Policy.
