Description

The 2013 Protocol and Good Practice Model: Disclosure of information in cases of alleged child abuse and linked criminal and care directions hearings (2013 protocol) covers all aspects of information exchange from the Local Authority and the Family Court to the police and CPS and vice versa. The 2013 protocol applies to all cases of alleged child abuse (sexual and non-sexual abuse). The 2013 protocol ensures that disclosure takes place from the outset of the investigation to the maximum extent permitted and required by law.

The President of the Family Division and the Senior Presiding Judge are signatories to the 2013 protocol. The 2013 protocol includes arrangements for the joint management of concurrent criminal and care proceedings by the courts.

The 2013 protocol is effective from 1 January 2014, and CPS Areas should draw up local protocols with Local Authorities, police forces and their local judiciary as soon as possible.
