Information for young people and their families
Lots of different adults work with children and young
people, for example teachers, health visitors and social
workers. They need to work together, but sometimes don’t
even know who else is involved. This can cause problems.
The Information Sharing project wants to make it easier
for everyone to work together so that you get a better
deal and get the best chance in life. We are trying
out some new ideas which should help.

and keep an eye on http://www.childrensfund.hants.org.uk
People working with you may not know who else is involved.
Eventually we will be setting up a Service Index on
a very secure website. It will have your name and address
and the name and address of everyone working with you,
including your school and doctor and anyone else who
is giving you a bit of extra help.The Service Index
will NOT hold any personal stuff at all: like how you
are doing at school. The Service Index is there when
people need to talk to each other. Only people with
a very good reason will be able to use the Index. We
will make sure of that.
So, Information Sharing is about everyone who works
with you working together better?
If you have any concerns or thoughts about this, please
talk about them with your parent, carer or someone you
trust, or contact
