2.3 Family Approach Protocol and Toolkit

The Family Approach Protocol and Toolkit was commissioned by the 4 Safeguarding Children Partnerships 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 Partnership’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 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 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 Safeguarding Children Partnerships.
