      Why have Pan-London Procedures?

 improve inter-agency working
 avoid people falling between the
    gaps in services
   reduce duplication of work
   gain a better understanding of
    safeguarding across all agencies
   ensure alignment of language
    used across agencies

     Metropolitan Police
     London Directors of Adult
     Chairs of London SABs
