The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme introduced locally by Greater Manchester Police and other local agencies which encourages carers and family members to compile key information which could help locate a cared-for adult in the event they go missing.
This system gives the emergency services the best possible information should they need to become involved in a search for at adult who is vulnerable or at-risk.
The Herbert Protocol is a form which can be kept at the adult's home, or in a safe place, with important information about them. Should they go missing, information is easily on hand about routines, medical requirements and favourite places to visit and can be handed over to the police, alleviating the worry of collecting it during a stressful time.
You can download the form and see more details about the development of the scheme below.
