Southampton Safeguarding Children Partnerships Team – Publication of new manual

Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton Safeguarding Children Partnerships (previously LSCB’s) work together to produce a county-wide online Procedures Manual. The online procedures website has been updated with new chapters, policies and procedures, and can be accessed by visiting

 The publication of the new manual presents an opportunity to re-visit the key policies and protocols that should be used to inform your work with children and their families. All procedures have been updated and all will have new weblinks. Please ensure that you review any links to the old procedures manual that may appear in current single agency policies, documents and on your websites. There is a Spotlight Briefing attached which gives more information on the new HIPS procedures.
