Getting Started:

If this is the first time you've visited this online Procedures Manual please read through our Getting Started with this Procedures Manual guidance to familiarise yourself with the layout and functions.

Welcome to your web-enabled Childhood First Procedures Manual.

These procedures relate to the 3 areas of service provision, namely:

  • Residential Care;
  • Therapeutic Fostering;
  • Education and Training (Institute).

The procedures are designed to be consistent with our regulatory and statutory requirements and also with localised Childhood First requirements. They have been designed for new and existing carers and deal with the day to day practicalities you may face.

These Procedures should be read alongside Local Resources.
