London Child Protection Procedures, 5th Edition, now out for consultation
A multi agency editorial panel, working with colleagues from Tri.x (appointed by London Councils following an open tendering process) have completed the first stage of the revision of the Pan London Child Protection Procedures. 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 consultation is available online at http://www.londoncp.co.uk/consultation/.
This stage of the consultation process will focus on Part A of the new procedures, Core Procedures, although we are also inviting comment on the proposed content of Part B, Practice Guidance. The consultation period for these procedures will be last for six weeks, commencing on the 1st May 2013. We aim to publish the revised procedures in July 2013 with a formal launch later in the year (at the London Safeguarding Children Conference in the autumn). The practice guidance will follow but also be completed in time for the formal launch in the autumn.
Comments on the procedures should be sent to Ian Dean, Manager of the London Safeguarding Children Board, either directly via email (email@example.com) or using the feedback form on the consultation page at http://www.londoncp.co.uk/consultation/, by Friday 14th June.
