The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme which encourages carers, family members or friends to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.

Using the Herbert Protocol form, you can record all vital details, such as medication required, mobile numbers and places regularly visited, or previously located if they have gone missing before. In the event of your family member or friend going missing, the form can be easily sent or handed to the police, along with a recent photograph – saving valuable time when you first contact us.

The Herbert Protocol initiative is named after George Herbert, a War veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia.
