Family Liaison Common Standards and Principles

The IAP has published family liaison common standards and principles, which were written in partnership with a range of custodial organisations, investigatory bodies and Department of Health.  The standards are being communicated to practitioners in each of the organisations and will be incorporated into existing policies and information leaflets in due course.  This work is the culmination of feedback the Panel received at family listening days, at which bereaved families highlighted the importance of accurate information about the death of a family member as well as involvement and information from any investigation as it develops.  The standards were endorsed by the Ministerial Board on Death in Custody at the most recent meeting on 12 February.  Organisations have been asked to outline how they intend to implement these standards and the Panel will be collating examples of best practice for publication in due course, which they hope will underpin the delivery of high quality family liaison.
