Revised Guidance

The Editorial Board would like to highlight that a number of chapters have been significantly revised and all amendments can be accessed in the section Amendments and Archives.


Six Monthly Updates:

The London Child Protection Procedures are updated on a six monthly basis with the relevant changes to legislation, statutory guidance and local guidance. The most recent update took place on 29th March 2018 and the changes can be viewed in the section Amendments and Archives. Urgent changes are sometimes made in response to recommendations from Serious Case Reviews or inspections of agencies.

A new addition to the manual is the Safeguarding Training Competency Framework which sets out the requirements for all agencies in meeting the training needs of their staff regarding safeguarding.

Users of the manual are advised to sign up for regular notifications of any changes made to the manual contents and to receive useful Briefing notes on a range of topics relevant to LSCBs. This can be done by clicking on the 'Register for Updates' button located at the top of this page.

The next update will be the 30th September 2018 - or the nearest working day following this date. Any comments or suggested changes for this update should be forwarded to Alison Renouf by 1st August 2018.
