Information sharing changes 2019
(music plays softly in the background)
This is an official government video.
The government has made changes to the rules about how information about children and young people is shared.
It's important that information can be shared if there are concerns about someone's safety or wellbeing.
So children and young people can get the right help and support they need.
This might be social workers, teachers and police.
Or, counsellors, doctors and nurses. And they'll only share information if they have a good reason to.
Professionals who work with children and young people will always try to talk to them first.
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.
And they'll only share information if they have a good reason to.
So that kids and young people can be safe.
So kids and young people can be safe.
