One Staffordshire executive summary
One Staffordshire Information Sharing Protocol - executive summary
This protocol deals with the emerging issues surrounding information sharing between agencies in light of the changing nature in which organisations are delivering services for the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of the community.
Promoting and achieving wellbeing is only likely to be successful where organisations work together to ensure that communities are:
- kept safe
- participating in healthy lifestyle choices
- looked after
- provided with the opportunity to succeed
- part of a thriving economy
The protocol has been produced by a working group made up of representatives from various public bodies whose remit has been to review existing information sharing protocols and replace them with the One Staffordshire information sharing protocol. It accurately reflects the current information sharing climate, legislative requirements and best practice.

Aim of the protocol
Our aim is to enable partners to co-ordinate effort, collate and exchange information to achieve joint objectives, co-ordinate resources, support one another in addressing common and locally set priorities and comply with the law.
The protocol outlines the purposes for sharing information, the powers that organisations have to share information, the role of partners and what can be expected from them and the processes for sharing.
