Family Approach Protocol

Click here to access the Family Approach Protocol

This 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.

This protocol, and its supporting documents in the online toolkit replace what was previously produced in the Joint Working Protocol (JWP). The information from the JWP has been distilled and presented in a more digestible format, and has been co-produced by agencies in both the children’s and adult’s workforce. The summary and flowchart from the JWP is still available for professionals here.

The aspects of practice described in this protocol are a shared responsibility, and must be at the heart of practice across all partner agencies of the 4LSAB and 4LSCBs.



Modern Slavery Protocol for Local Authorities

Please find links to the newly published Modern Slavery Protocol for Local Authorities in the Practice Guidance and Resource webpage. These resources have been produced to help improve the Local Authority’s response to human trafficking and modern slavery, in particular the identification and support offered to adult survivors. The guidance provides non-prescriptive steps to follow when a potential victim of human trafficking or modern slavery is identified. It should be adapted to each local authority’s internal structures.
