Welcome to the West Sussex Children's Homes Procedures Manual.

These are some of the key elements you need to be aware of:

  • Procedures - this contains the main policies and procedures for the homes. Some of these will be kept in the Practice Guidance section so you should use that section to;
  • Practice Guidance - contains local guidance, tools and other information that supports and complements the policies and procedures in the procedures section.

You should also use the West Sussex Safeguarding Children Partnership and the Pan Sussex Child Protection and Safeguarding Procedures; which contain the guidance on safeguarding topics to help keep the children we work with to be safe and able to develop to their full potential.
You can access these from the 'SCP Procedures' button on the toolbar above.

Please see 'Using this Manual' for full details about the way this manual works. There is also a Glossary (should you need it).
