Procedures Manual for Brighton and Hove Children's Services

May 2017: Click here to view the latest changes.


This is a further review of the revised Procedures Manual. The Procedures Manual will be a ‘work in progress’ as legislation and regulation continues to develop and change. Therefore, some chapters are under review whilst due consideration on their development is made. Should there be any queries, staff should also consult with their line managers.

Additionally, some chapters link to key aspects in the Pan Sussex Child Protection Manual in Part 4.3 and staff should familiarise themselves with the contents of this Part of this manual so that reference to relevant information can be quickly made when needed.

Important Note: May 2017

One Story Update: we are in the process of updating the procedures to reflect the recent introduction of Strengthening Families forms. Over the next 6 months there will be further changes as Me and My World is introduced for Children In Care.

If you have any queries about forms, please contact the Lead Practitioners.

Comment and contributions on the Manual are welcomed.
