Information Sharing

When multiple agencies are involved in a child’s life, better information sharing can improve how systems serve youth. It is important to be able to share information to provide effective services. However, it is also crucial to protect information that is inappropriate or illegal to share because of privacy concerns. NCYL helps agencies develop information-sharing strategies and mechanisms that balance the need for information with privacy needs, thereby leading to better care and services for youth.
