When a person goes missing, it is very distressing for family and friends and can be even more worrying when the missing person has dementia for example. The North Wales Safeguarding Adults Board is supporting the launch of the Herbert Protocol.
The Herbert Protocol is a simple risk reduction tool to help the police in their search for Adults at Risk who go missing.
The form is filled in by the person at risk, their family or carers. The completed form should be kept safely by carers, family or friends, but where it can be found quickly in the unfortunate event of the person going missing. The police will only ever ask for the form if the person is reported missing.
The North Wales Safeguarding Adults Board will be hosting a regional conference where the Herbert Protocol will be launched.
