Congleton’s Senior Forum had their latest meeting recently, read meeting minutes HERE.
| The Herbert Protocol – PCSO Jess Shore.
Jess briefed us on the new Herbert Protocol (Safe & Sound) that is being launched by Cheshire Police and the Alzeimers Society.
The Herbert Protocol is a new initiative which looks to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person or someone suffering with dementia going missing.
In the event a person goes missing you then hand the pro-former to police, which reduces the time taken to gather key information. As a result, this allows for a prompt and effective search and promotes their safe return.
Jess to forward a pack of information to all forum members.
