Following high-profile serious case reviews (SCRs) into the tragic deaths of children, information sharing has now become a moral and political imperative for safeguarding children. What prompts information sharing between professionals mandated to work together to safeguard children? This book challenges widely held assumptions about information sharing in child welfare that 'facts' about risks to children are clear and that sharing them with other professionals is a straight-forward process. The book contains practice relevant questions for reflection
