Missing vulnerable people

When a friend or family member with dementia goes missing it can be incredibly distressing.

The Herbert Protocol is a national initiative which encourages carers to keep a record of key information that could be useful to us in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.

We have set up the scheme locally, alongside partners including the Dementia Action Alliance.

Carers are being asked to download the form, fill it in and keep it updated so that it is ready to hand or send to us should it ever be needed. This will help to save vital time when locating the missing vulnerable person you care for.

Helpful information includes phone numbers, places the person often goes, medication they are taking, a photograph of them and more.

This form is not intended to replace existing safeguarding or security measures.
