London Child Protection Procedures: updated Part A now available 

A multi-agency editorial panel, working with colleagues from Tri.x(appointed by London Councils following an open tendering process) have now completed the work on Part A of the London Child Protection Procedures, covering the Core child protection procedures. These are available to download at

The principles underlying this revision of the procedures have been to separate out procedures from practice guidance and to update the procedures in accordance with Working Together 2013 and other developments in social work practice. The editorial panel have been working on a fully revised section of practice guidance as Part B of the new Procedures. This section is accessible via the 'Part B' tab.

The contents in Part B is the same chapters, which were in the 4th edition of the London Child Protection Procedures and are currently being revised.
