Boy 1:

This is an official government video.

 

Girl 1:

The government has made changes to the rules about how information about children and young people is shared.

 

Boy 2:

It's important that information can be shared if there are concerns about someone's safety or wellbeing.

 

Boy 3:

So children and young people can get the right help and support they need.

 

Boy 2:

This might be social workers, teachers and police.

 

Boy 1:

Or, counsellors, doctors and nurses. And they'll only share information if they have a good reason to.



Girl 2:

Professionals who work with children and young people will always try to talk to them first.

 

Girl 1:

They can also tell the professionals who are working with them what they think about their information being shared.

They'll think about this carefully before they share anything.

 

Girl 2:

And they'll only share information if they have a good reason to.

 

Boy 2:

So that kids and young people can be safe.

 

Boy 3:

So kids and young people can be safe.

 

Girl 2:

Nailed it.
