GloucestershireChildren's Social Care Procedures Manual

Welcome to Gloucestershire Children's Social Care Procedures Manual

January 2017

This is the new procedures manual for Gloucestershire Children Services and it replaces any previous versions of the Gloucestershire Children Services Procedure manual. Any copies of those old procedures should be discarded.

The new version is easier to read and will resize for desktop, tablets, or mobile viewing.

The Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board Child Protection Procedures can be accessed from the menu at the top of the home page and should be read alongside this manual as they will contain the guidance on a range of topics including Child Sexual Exploitation, Missing Children and FGM.

The Gloucestershire SCB Child Protection Procedures are part of the South West Child Protection Procedures (SWCPP). Additional Guidance from Gloucestershire SCB can also be found on the Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board Website.

Please see 'Using this Manual' for details about the way this manual works. For further details, please contact Sarah Holtom ( Principal Social Worker - Practice Improvement Children & Young People's Service.
