North West ADCS Notification and Transfer across Local Authority Boundaries Procedures
SCOPE OF THIS CHAPTER
This chapter provides links to recommended ADCS regional procedures for transferring children and families across local authority boundaries.
It is anticipated that when local authorities in the region follow these procedures, then the outcomes for children will be improved as they will be better safeguarded and able to access the services to meet their needs as required.
