Follow the Adult Support and Protection Reporting Harm Protocol and complete the Inter-agency Report of Harm Referral Form
Please note the change of name of the referral form to 'Inter-agency Report of Harm Referral.' This aligns the terminology with the Reporting Harm Protocol and makes distinct a referral related to an adult at risk of harm as described in the Adult Support and Protection (Scotland) Act 2007 from any other concern. This change was agreed by the Adult Support and Protection Committee (ASPC) on 6 February 2017.

- The Herbert Protocol - The Herbert Protocol gives families and care givers reassurance and help, to keep those they care for safe. It's a system that provides the police with everything they would need to know to search for a vulnerable person if they went missing.
It’s a form that's kept at home, containing important information regarding known routines and habits. It also contains descriptions of friends/relatives and details of others involved with their care. It can be handed to Police so that you do not have to worry about gathering the information during what can be a very stressful time.
