The Herbert Protocol

Caring for people with dementia or Alzheimer’s can be challenging.
There’s a risk they can at some point start to ‘walk out’. This may only be into the garden or street for a short time, but some people can get lost and go missing so planning ahead to keep them safe is really important. The Herbert Protocol


Partnership Intelligence

If you have some information which you think may assist other partners, use the Surrey Police Partnership Intelligence form (Partnership Intelligence Guidance). This is not a means for reporting crimes, notifying the police of an imminent risk, or referring safeguarding concerns. It does not replace existing information sharing practices, however it does allow for intelligence to be passed between agencies quickly and efficiently. For further information on this form click here.


Fire Safety

If you are concerned that a person is at high risk of fire, Surrey Fire and Rescue service can offer an Emergency Home Fire Safety visit.
Please complete the online safe and well visit form, where a resident requires an immediate visit and advice.
