Herbert Protocol for Vulnerable Persons

Dear Watch Member,

People with dementia can sometimes start to wander. This might only be into the garden or street for a short time, but sometimes people get lost and go missing.

Carers, family or friends of a vulnerable person, or the person themselves, can fill in the Herbert Protocol form (PDF 529 KB) in advance, containing information to help the police if the person goes missing.

Keeping a completed form means you don’t have to try to remember the information when you are under stress if someone goes missing. And it saves time, so we can start the search sooner; the quicker a person can be located the less likely they will come to harm.
